Description Jan Sommer 2016-09-28 19:21:07 UTC
In the Settings->Browser I have configured to open links in an external browser.
However, if I follow a link in an article instead it opens a new Akregator window where the link is opened.

This only happens with the links in the article itself. If I click on the "Complete Story"-Link at the end of the article, it is correctly opened in my browser.

The same happens if I set the option to "Open in Tab". "Complete Story" opens a new tab inside Akregator. A normal link in the article opens an extra window of the internal browser.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the browser settings to external browser
2. Click a link in an article

Actual Results:  
The link is opened in a new Akregator-Window (the internal browser, I guess)

Expected Results:  
The link should be opened in the external browser

This seems to work with 5.10 (from KDE apps 18.12). If you still see, please reopen.
