Brave Browser is blocking links to open Microsoft Outlook and I do mean the desktop version of Outlook, not Office 365 / Outlook 365 email, via a browser. More specifically, Brave is blocking the pop-up that allows Outlook to open an email dialog box to send an email. I do get a brief pop-up that disappears in a split second.
The pop-up message is below.
https://appus.act.com wants to open this application.
☐ Always allow appus.act.com to open links of this type in the associated app
In the pop-up, the checkbox next to “Always allow appus.act.com to open links” is NOT checked and I cannot react quick enough to even try to change this setting.
In Brave, I have Shields DOWN for this URL.
In Brave, I have allowed appus.act.com to send pop-ups and redirects.
In Outlook, I changed “Link Handling” and checked "Open supported hyperlinks to Office files in Desktop apps.
Despite this, Brave is blocking Outlook from opening.
Using Microsoft Edge, I have no issues so, this is definitely a Brave Browser issue or setting.
FYI, I have found this same issue documented in Brave Forums and on Microsoft forums BUT, I have not seen a single answer or solution to this problem.
I am running Brave on Windows 10
Brave Version 1.50.78 Chromium: 111.0.5563.50 (
Windows 10 64-Bit.
