Web Browser pop up

I’m new to Scrivener and attempted searching the Bug Hunt forum for any existing issues around this problem:

I created a web link in the Research folder of my project and was able to click it to browse. However, now my web browser constantly opens itself every 10-20 seconds and goes to the link. This happens even after trashing the research file and emptying trash.

I was not able to find any settings in the Preferences to control this behavior and it constantly interrupts other work on my Mac. Is this a bug or something that can be disabled?


That doesn’t sound like anything of Scrivener’s doing. It won’t open a browser unless you ask it to. The archived page will be displayed within the software itself. Does this condition persist after a reboot?

Thanks for the reply. After force-quitting the app and reopening, the problem has gone away.
