Description

Identify.ing from a wms with a text/html response, qgis will produce a perfect window with html tags.
It build also the links colored in blu.
And overlapping the link the cursor also change the icon to show it is a link.
But click-ing on it . The link is not followed.

I guess this is a bug because qgis show clearly it is a link. But when click-ed it don't work.

I guess the more useful solution was if the link was follow opening a browser windows.

Could you update issue info on platform please. Also, do you have a test URL for the WMS server used?

Hi.
I discovered an interesting fact.
The link now work.
The explanation is that my test was made all behind a proxy.
In this situation qgis was unable to follow the link.

Instead if outside from proxy the link is followed.

So the bug is :
qgis was unable to follow the link in an identify if is behind a proxy.
