Description Syam 2020-07-25 04:49:52 UTC
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1. Open any sufficiently long feed article to view in the inline viewer
2. Scroll down in the viewer
3. *Left* click on any link to open in external browser

OBSERVED RESULT
Article scrolls to top in the inline viewer.

EXPECTED RESULT
Article's scroll position is unchanged.

VERSIONS
KDE Plasma Version: 5.18.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.70.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Akregator browser settings:
Left mouse click: Open in external browser
Middle mouse click: Open in external browser
External browsing: Use default web browser

KDE browser settings:
Open http and https URLs: in the following application: Firefox

PS: Apparently, middle clicking on a link has no effect! Only left click works. But that's for another bug report, I guess.

I can confirm the observed behavior, it's fully reproducible here.

VERSIONS
Kontact: 5.14.1 (20.04.0)
KDE Plasma Version: 5.17.5
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.70.0
Qt Version: 5.14.2

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Akregator browser settings:
Left mouse click: Open in external browser
  (I confirmed that the bug occurs with all three selectable options.)
Middle mouse click: Open in new tab
  (I confirmed that there is no reaction on middle click with all three selectable options, but this is really a separate bug.)
External browsing: Use default web browser
  (I confirmed that the bug also occurs when setting an external browser explicitly.)

KDE browser settings:
Open http and https URLs: in the following application: Firefox
  (I confirmed that the bug also occurs when setting Chromium or Falkon as the default browser in the general KDE settings.)
