Sometimes, Mail and your web browser become overloaded with temporary files and can generate issues such as not opening a link correctly.
Usually, when you click on a link in an mail on the Mail app on Mac, it’s supposed to open it on your default web browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox…).
When Mail doesn’t open the link properly or opens a blank tab instead, what do you do?
It’s pretty simple:
- Clear all history from your web browser, including passwords, cookies and everything else since the beginning of time
- Quit your browser then reopen it (we mean a true “quit”, not just closing the window, use the keyboard shortcut command-Q)
- Quit Mail (command-Q) then reopen it.
- That’s it!
This way, you’ve given an opportunity to these two apps to clear temporary files and restart correctly to communicate better when you click links on an email.
