On desktop version not all links are sent/received as links but as text, only. In Android version links are seen as link.

Example link: “Pflichtteilsergänzungsanspruch Nießbrauch - Rechtliches & mehr

I added your case to the related message parser issue: links that have non spec chars in the location part are not clickable · Issue #16 · deltachat/message-parser · GitHub


In the desktop version 1.34.4 the Emoji country flag symbols are missing (did not check in earlier versions). Just eight general flags are available. In Android version I can see all of them.

screenshot? for me all flags are displayed in the picker, or do you mean in messages?

on what system are you running dc desktop? do you have any other information that could help us in reproducing this issue?

Edit: made an issue: Bundled Emojis fail to load · Issue #3128 · deltachat/deltachat-desktop · GitHub

I use Windows 11 desktop. By the way I cannot open your fix https://github.com/deltachat/deltachat-desktop/pull/3129.
