Links in Evolution not working

Fedora 15, when I click on a link in Evolution email, Firefox opens OK, but does not go to the link but to the home page.

Any work-arounds please or is this a bug?

Re: Links in Evolution not working

what Extensions do you have in Firefox? sounds to me more of a Firefox Bug than a Evo one

Re: Links in Evolution not working

what you could dop for a tyest is, Disable all Extensions and try clicking a link in Evolution ( but have firefox closed ) my guess it could be a extension causing the problem

and then enable an extension 1 by 1 by testing to see if the Link fully opens the page in firefox

Re: Links in Evolution not working

have you got any other browsers installed you can test against? ( you'll have to make that browser the default so it opens )
