            Bug ID: 435606
           Summary: Cannot left- or middle-click on links in articles
                    viewed in the sidebar
           Product: akregator
           Version: GIT (master)
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Other
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org

Created attachment 137501

Screenshot with working and non-working links marked

If I view an article in the sidebar and the article contains links, clicking on
the links (either left- or middle-click) does not open the link. In 'Settings >
Configure Akregator > Browser', I have configured both left- and middle-click
to open in external browser. 

1. View any article in the sidebar.
2. Left-click or middle-click on a link in the article (this should not be the
link to the full version of the article or the link to the homepage; see
attached screenshot for description of which links do and do not work).

Nothing happens after clicking on the link

The link should open in an external browser or in a tab according to the user's

Akregator: 5.16.90 beta (21.03.80) (this is the output of `akregator
Linux distro: Arch Linux
KDE Plasma Version: 5.21.4
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.80.0
Qt Version: 5.15.2
Kernel Version: 5.11.12-arch1-1

I am using the package from the kde-unstable repo [1]. In this package, the
commit [2] is applied on top of the released source. The 'planet KDE' RSS feed
[3] has many articles with links, which may be useful to reproduce this bug.

If I right-click on the links, I can see the 'open in tab' and open in external
browser' options, and those work as expected. If I view articles in the
internal browser (by opening in a tab), I can left- or middle-click on links in
the article.

I was able to click on links with the version released as part of KDE
Applications 20.12.3.
