Here's a parenthesized test (http://archivemag.co.uk) using MPro 7.08
(2015feb16) on ArmX6 (5.23 R-Comp OS10), Netsurf #4316.
I tested this in three successive situations:
* Ctrl-click URL here in Emailedit where I'm writing this ---
* "Defer" my message within Messenger and then open it in Deferred
folder (ie, in prettier display format, not Emailedit), click URL ---
* Actually send message to one of my other addresses via the big wide
internet and then click the URL in the Messenger format I receive ---
In all three situations, Netsurf shows no closing parenthesis in its
URL field, and works OK.
Dunno which versions of the software(s) you are using. Maybe the
glitch is been cured if you update.
By the way, just curious: Who maintains Messenger these days?
Is it a particular person in the R-Comp band, or Andrew R himself?
(despite his current painful armlessness -- we feel for him)
