I notice that some e-mail addresses within a TB message will only open up to the "compose" option while others can only open to that option by rt. clicking 'compose e-mail to.' Wondering if this is a bug, or a problem with the e-mail links themselves? Checked the same links in Juno, Comcast and G-Mail Web accounts and these same e-mail links will open up with a simple left-click. Minor problem, but appears to be a TB Bug.

I can forward an e-mail with an example of a 'dead e-mail link" specific to TB if anyone is interested looking into this. Of course, I will need an address to send it to.

Are the ones that do open the compose window mailto: addresses, and the ones that don't open the compose window not mailto: links?

I’m not sure I can differentiate between the ones that work in the ones that don’t. They both look what common email links. Is there a way to do that?

I would use More > View Source from the message header.

I would use More > View Source from the message header.[/quote]Here's what came up for an example of a non-working (left-click) e-mail link within an e-mail:

a class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="mailto:norcalshambhala@gmail.com">&lt;norcalshambhala@gmail.com&gt;</a></td>


Does this make sense to you?

Well if it is one that isn't working, it is because the "a class=" doesn't start with a <.

It should be, <a class="moz-txt-link-rfc2396E" href="mailto:norcalshambhala@gmail.com">&lt;norcalshambhala@gmail.com&gt;</a>. That works as a mailto: link to open a compose window in a test email saved as a draft for me.

Also works in the account I sent the message to as a test.
