Hello and thanks for the fix. There is one issue though: if the link is clicked and the cursor is moved after the button has been released, text will be selected while the browser opens. There is around 1 sec window after clicking when the text is still selected. This causes text to be highlighted by accident almost every time I click a link :(.

I'm wondering if the call to open the url blocks while the binary is loading and this causes the text to be erroneously selected. On the other hand it didn't matter if the browser was already open - the issue was still there.

My terminal is in version 0.4.1-0~r960+pkg48~ubuntu0.4.1 and I'm using chromium as the browser.
