Brave highjacked my Thunderbird


Hi there,

How are you doing?

So I’m not thrilled that Brave took over & stopped my TB from popping up when I clicked on a mailto link.

This had been going on for a couple of weeks (never did it before) & my website coder took me to Ctrl Panel & default programs which I’ve NEVER been to before.

Here’s the SS

It’s working now, but it shouldn’t do that.


Not sure why that happened but it’s good to know that you have a fix when it does. This is exactly what I would suggest you do. You may also want to go to brave://settings/handlers and ensure that the browser isn’t given permission to open any mailto links by default.
