Hi, How are you? The Mailto links in websites not working correctly in FF 39.0. It was working fine, then all of a sudden it started malfunctioning. It will open the webmail client (AOL) and enter the webpage name in the Subject field, nut it will no longer put the url link into the txt/details field.

Thank you for your help in advance.

I don't think Firefox has changed what it sends to websites to compose the message, but sometimes mail sites change how they interpret it.

I don't have an AOL account so I can't test AOL for myself. (Actually, I started to create a test account, but they demand a mobile number, so never mind.)

If you check the address bar, does the URL seem to be included there? It's okay if the special characters like : and / are encoded with % followed by a pair of numbers/letters.
