Nightly doesn't open links from other apps on Fedora 27
I have set Nightly as my default browser on Fedora 27, but whenever I click a link in some app, Nightly will just open a blank window. Regular Firefox works fine, though. I've tried switching to GNOME on Xorg to see if it's a Wayland issue, but the problem persists...
Did you check that the %u parameter is present in the Firefox .desktop file to pass the URL to Firefox?Read this answer in context 👍 2

Sorry, I am not aware of how links from external apps work on the Linux platform. But Nightly is supported in this support forum, but we don't get many questions about Nightly here. And I don't test the pre-release versions of Firefox any longer; "gave them up for Lent" a few years ago. LOL
Please be patient and wait for a more informative answer about Nightly on Linux. Later in the day is when the Linux "experts" arrive on-board, at least during week days. Hit and miss on the weekend.
On Windows OS's there can be only one browser that is the "default browser" for external apps; set a Firefox Release version as the "default browser" and it won't work for Nightly in the same Operating System.
I use Nightly (a Mozilla build) on Ubuntu 17.10 and I know the issue that you are talking about - I see the same thing.
Let me look into this further for you and I will see what I can find out.
