FastMail email links do not open in browser


(Phil) #1

The issue I’m facing is:

Using Fastmail in Station, when I click a link in an email, the link is opened in the fastmail tab of station and not in my OS default browser as I expect.

I can manually override this by right clicking each link and selecting ‘Open in default browser’ but this should be the default behaviour for clicking links in emails.


Here’s the detailed report

  • Trigger: click link in fastmail email
  • Issue: link opens in station and not in default browser
  • Explanatory gifs/pictures (we really need that :pray: ):
  • OS version: macOS 10.13
  • Station version: 1.15.1

Hey @phelm,

Could you send me:

  • examples of URLs that open in the FastMail tab instead of the browser?
  • a screen recording of the bug?

This would allow me to reproduce it and look for a fix.

Hi Georges,

This seems to be happening to all email links in the fastmail tab

for example I sent an email with a link to www.bbc.co.uk
