    I see the same thing now and then, thought it was just me. It even will do it in the middle of a line.

    That does sometimes happen... there are a couple of formatting quirks- like adding text after you've a URL shown in your post - e.g. when editing it, or changing back from italics or bold e.g.

    You know about the protocol setting in the control panel; you can also try this if it's not been mentioned for your particular email client:

    It just dawned on me that it happens when using Reply With Quote.

    - works fine for me with Firefox.. to start with. But sometimes what you describe happens when typing and modifying a reply - but I've never quite noticed what causes it.

    The seem to have "fixed" this in the Anniversary release by locking the MAILTO protocol down to MAIL. No other choices.

    Does this help? This bit looks promising...

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\Google Chrome\Capabilities\URLAssociations]
    ...
    "mailto"="ChromeHTML"

    I don't use that browser. Not sure why it would help. The problem is happening, no matter which browser I use, since "upgrading" to Windows 10.

    It helps because it shows the methods needed to make your browser available in the MAILTO protocol - even with the Anniversary Update 1607, thus...

    In the case of Firefox, a new String named mailto should be added to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\FIREFOX.EXE\Capabilities\URLAssociations with the value FirefoxURL (the same value as all the existing strings there). In addition, Firefox itself need to be configured to handle a mailto: by opening your chosen webmail service (or whatever else you use). For Firefox the relevant setting are found by putting...

    I'm not clear on whether I'd have to change the registry for every browser I use. I use Seamonkey almost all the time, and Firefox rarely and almost never anything else.

    I tried that default apps mail protocol setting already, to no avail.
