Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 818160
Sometimes links in HTML emails cannot be followed
Last modified: 2012-05-03 02:48:15 EDT
Description of problem:
Sometimes clicking on the links shown in emails does not open a browser but instead selects text from the beginning of the message to the clicked-on point.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure. Seems to happen reliably when evolution is first started.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.View an HTML email containing a link
3.Click on the link.
Part of the email text is highlighted.
A web browser is opened.
Clicking on a link in a text (not HTML) email seems to restore normal behaviour.
Thanks for a bug report. This particular one had been reported already, thus I'm marking it as a duplicate.
