I can not seem to get this function working. From what I understand, it's meant to open any URL posted in the channel window in the default browser.

Am I missing something? My default browser is set to Firefox.

It just adds them to the urls list window.

Loki, you are thinking of the URL catcher. Track URLs is separate feature on a channel/query window's system menu.

Lillebakken, the Track URLs feature does work, however the URL catcher itself must also be enabled for it to have any effect. Go to Tools > Options, look in the IRC > Catching category, and check "Enable catching for: [x] URLs". Then turn Track URLs on for a window, and links will now automatically open in your web browser.

I wonder if it's a bug that URL catching must be enabled for Track URLs to work. A catcher and a launcher seem like significantly unique features for there to be interdependence...

There was a dependency in the Track URLs feature that prevented it from working if the URL catcher was turned off. This issue should be fixed in the next version.
