use of default browser in web clips


I continue to struggle with finding a good research platform. I went to put together some items using some web clippings I’d done some time ago. When I click a url to an external website, it is loaded in the editor window! I don’t remember this happening before v1.8. I expect an external link to be launched in my default browser. Perhaps I missed this behavior before, but I’m wondering if this is a bug. And, is there an option to force the program to always use my default browser for all internet url’s? TIA

Be well,
