Normally a hyperlink (in html) can state a target (for instance this or blank) in which the link should be opened.
Ofcourse if you created an pdf with indesign, you want the hyperlink to be opened in a new tab or window.
Such that your pdf remains open for the reader to continu after visitting the link.
However this is not the case (at least not in Chrome or Firefox).
I can't seem to find how to specify the desired behavior for each link (you would expect this to be fairly easy with such an old standaard).

Who uses Arcobat?
PDF = portable document standard, can be opened by various apps.
Since most work online and pdf support is common in browsers, no one needs Acrobat Reader.
is this a browser thing, really?
I think this would be a html thing where Adobe only fills the href and does not support the target attribute.
There lot's of other pdf generators that in fact work as typically desired.
I don't have/want Acrobat on my PC
Then I suggest looking closely at what you are exporting....it's called Adobe PDF for a reason.
I already bumped in to very old requests on this.
Surely such a trivial thing would be supported now in this decade?!?
I guess the pdf standard or PS standard for that matter, failed to address proper support for this simple use case that nowadays it concidered very normal behavior for viewers?
Take it up with ISO. It's their standard.
For the enduser that means:
