    Default mailto links

    one of the very few problems I have struck since installing 12.2 KDE 64

    mailto links don't work for me - in either chrom or firefox

    I have tried with both kmail and thunderbird

    in config desktop I set the default application and checking preferences in firefox can see that it respects those settings

    but clicking a mailto link produces absolutely nothing - zilch.

    anybody able to point me in the right direction?

    Yes, I have tried setting both kmail and thunderbird to the default.

    when I change the default setting and then check in Firefox properties I can see that it has recognised my change - yet clicking a mailto link in both firefox and chrome results in absolutely nothing (whether the mail app is already running or not).

    Just tried it out in Konqueror and that launches mailto links without problem.

    Seems like there is something suppressing these links in both chrome and firefox.

    Interestingly, I tried changing firefox preferences to use gmail with mailto links - which should launch gmail in a browser window - yet this also did not work.

    sadly, I have long ago visited this (as explained in my prev posts) and it has had not effect (and would not explain the same behaviour in chrome)

    Yes, in a new user account the mailto links work.
    However, I only installed 12.2 yesterday and spent approx six hours getting the current user account set up as I like so I'd be extreeeeemely disappointed if I had to move to a new user account just to get mailto links working.
