How to disable or whitelist the mailto protocol and stop the extension pop-up?


Every time I try emailing the link with an extension, I get this pop-up requiring a white list for that domain. It’s a major pain, I want to global white-list the extension for mailto links.

Brave 1.42.97
Mac Monterey 12.5.1

Install this extension:

Go to any website, click the icon on the extension menu, alert pops-up to allow. If you’re not getting the pop-up and just a grey screen, open up the Apple Mail app, go into preferences and set the default mail app, Mail or Outlook, etc. Save, then try again.

Some say this is possible by creating a JSON file to whitelist “mailto:” links, however, the only examples are for Windows and Linux.
