Description of the issue:
A while ago, clicking on an email link on a website changed suddenly from opening my email program (outlook for mac) to a gmail web browser page. As this was very annoying and not useable, I turned this off, not knowing I could simply have changed the preference. Now when I click, either nothing happens, or a web browser tap is opened with the link as the url, but nothing opens.
How can this issue be reproduced?

  1. by clicking on any email link on a website

Expected result: have my outlook open an email when clicking an email link on a website

Brave Version( check About Brave):
Version 1.22.67 Chromium: 89.0.4389.90 (Official Build) (x86_64)

Hi @Duckduck,
Can you go to brave://settings/handlers and check if gmail is listed as allowed to open mail. If so, please click on the 3 dot menu and remove.
