Opening a bookmark from app grid seems to be broken

REPRODUCIBILITY (% or how often): 100%
BUILD ID = OS VERSION (Settings > About product): (Koli)
HARDWARE (XA2, Xperia 10…): XA2
REGRESSION: (compared to previous public release: Yes, No, ?): Don’t know


I’m not able to open pinned bookmarks from the app grid. When clicked, focus is moved to the open apps view from app grid but browser does not start.



  1. Add a bookmark to the app grid
  2. Click the bookmark icon from app grid


Browser starts


Browser does not start


Mabe it is somewhat related to mime handlers?
I had Fernschreiber installed, which inserts itself as a http(s) handler, and it got activated instead.
However, now with it uninstalled, it still doesn’t work.

Edit: seems to still be that way for me.
From the journal log: error: /usr/bin/harbour-fernschreiber: not found

FIxed (for me) by removing ~/.local/share/applications/harbour-fernschreiber-open-url.desktop


This worked, thanks! I had also Piepmatz’s desktop entry there still ghosting and now that issue is gone also. :slight_smile:

Thanks, this fixed an issue I had today after installing Microtube.

I think this is right. A while back I installed Webcat, a replacement web browser from Openreps, when the Sailfish web browser was even less functional than it is today. Webcat was better but still had issues, so I went back to the native default browser. Even after I deleted the Webcat app any html link I tried to open from another app still tried to open Webcat even though it wasn’t installed anymore - resulting in … nothing happening. It took me ages, and a lot of help from people in the old Jolla Together forum, to edit some file to remove the mime handler for Webcat/html or whatever.

I have the same problem with Koli.

Had same problem. Started Piepmatz after a long time. it created a hidden(?) url link and after that all url links were opening Piepmatz. Unistalling or recreating icons did not help. Removing url-link as instructed here solved my problem.
