Description Tim Waugh 2012-05-02 07:05:46 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):

How reproducible:
Not sure.  Seems to happen reliably when evolution is first started.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start evolution.
2.View an HTML email containing a link
3.Click on the link.
Actual results:
Part of the email text is highlighted.

Expected results:
A web browser is opened.

Additional info:
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.
