Contact links close web socket [universal browser problem, can't be fixed]

In my browser clicking on the contact links causes the connection to drop.

The link correctly opens my email app and populates the address.

However, the receiver tab freezes and the console shows:

websocket is already in CLOSING or CLOSED state.           snd_send @ openwebrx.js:5584

which repeats ad infinitum until I close the tab.


  • Sorry, I missed it. I did do a search but must have used the wrong words.

    Do you have to use sendmail? Why not use a mailto: url and then it shouldn't happen.

    sendmail() is just a js routine that processes an obfuscated email address and applies it to a mailto:
    This is done to keep the email cleartext out of the js and hopefully away from the Internet email scrapers.
