For #Tusky 8 I will finally implement animated avatars

So, the full plan for #Tusky 8 is:
• fix them bugs
• fix more bugs
• refactor the shit out of that old codebase
• fix even more bugs
• animate avatars
• i guess some bugfixing won't hurt
#tuskydev

Hi, I am trying to set the Tusky app to open external links directly in the app. The corresponding switch has been activated in app settings. But no matter what I do, links are always opened in the external default browser.

Is this a known issue? Thanks.

@dans_root what browser do you have installed? Afaik this only works with Firefox and Chrome

Various browsers are installed, mostly from F-Droid, e.g. Privacy Browser, Fennec (Firefox), Tor Browser, Bromite (Chromium) and FOSS Browser.

FOSS Browser is currently default. Do I have to add a vanilla Firefox for that feature? My expectation would be that the app would use Android's built-in WebView.

@dans_root no it is not using the built-in webview but rather the "custom tab" feature some browsers offer and falls back to opening in the default browser if that does not work.

@ConnyDuck

OK, thanks for the information. After switching the default browser to Fennec, it does open links in an in-app browser tab. FOSS Browser did not support custom browser tabs.

I opened an issue in Github (1307), which you may use to add a corresponding explaination in Tusky's settings for other users to better understand this setting.
