Question: Apple Mail for High Sierra isn't opening email links
I've recently upgraded to the new High Sierra on my Macbook Air and so far it seems like a straightforward incremental upgrade to the OS. However, the enhancements to Apple Mail seems to have included a change in how links work.
In previous versions of Apple Mail, when I click on an email link, it automatically opens the link in my chosen browser (Chrome in my case).
In the new Apple Mail that comes with High Sierra, I click an email link and it does not change the focus to the browser window. Instead, it opens a new window (not a new tab--why? this is strange) but doesn't actually load the link! I cannot find anything in preferences to specify how Mail should handle links, so I think we are dealing with a bug.
Has anyone else experienced this issue? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
MacBook Air, macOS High Sierra (10.13.1)
