Links in emails and other apps don't always work

  • Just recently started trying out Vivaldi but unfortunately links from other apps don't always work. I use Mailbird for email and most of the time the links in an email won't open in Vivaldi. This is also true with other apps that have links in them. I can immediately switch to Chrome or Firefox and those same links work correctly. From searching this forum that appears to be an ongoing problem. Too bad.

    1. Set Vivaldi as default browser in Vivaldi Settings → General.
    2. In your Windows Settings → Apps → Standard apps → Settings for Protocol.
      Check which app is set for http and https.

  • I will check that next time the link fails. I just restarted and it is working so far. Thanks

  • Still broken. The protocols are set to Vivaldi but the links aren't opening (in 2 different apps) but when I set defaults back to Chrome they work properly.

    @mikebtp I see on my Windows 10 Pro (1903) Vivaldi opening links from other programs like Claws Mail, Thunderbird, The Bat! or LibreOffice if Vivaldi is set as default browser.

    I do not know how Mailbird reads Windows settings for https or http protocols.

    May be your issue is a bug.
    Please read how to Report a bug for Vivaldi carefully and then report the bug to Vivaldi bugtracker.

  • It's the same issue with links in the Backblaze app too. At first I thought it was Mailbird but when I switch to Chrome all links work. I'll report the bug.
