Additional information

Sometimes after entering url without slash (https://obsidian.md) .
url with slash start working corretcly (https://obsidian.md/).
Try to delete cards in browser to renew bug.

Bug occur in

  • Edit view and Reading view.
  • Firefox and Chrome (last upadte)

Normal url works fine.
e.g. https://obsidian.md

Url with slash (https://obsidian.md/) works when pasted directly to browser url bar.


The URL works perfectly fine for me on my iPhone. It’s weird that there is some url attached when you click on the URL. Are there any installed community plugins that format your note on editing/saving?

I’ve tested in Restricted mode (without community plugins).

It’s weird bug, because you have to close obsidian sites in browser (include this forum) to refresh bug.


I can’t reproduce the issue - seems like you have a Zero-Width Space at the end of the URL you pasted here (it’s invisible after the /, because it’s zero-width). It’s only visible when you inspect the text.

If I type the URL myself into Obsidian (and add a trailing /) it works just fine.
