    Default M5 Android issue re: web links

    For me, Mezzmo v5 is working fine on Win10 and Android, but there's one change in behavior on Android that I hope will be fixed/changed:

    When I'm using Mezzmo on my Android tablet to decide what flick to watch tonight, or maybe to get "Who is that actor?" details, I frequently use Mezzmo's link to IMDb. That link still works, but it used to open as a separate process; now it seems to open within Mezzmo. When I get to the IMDb listing, then click on, say, an actor, it does show me that detail page within IMDb, but here's the problem: When I click back, it takes me all the way back to the Mezzmo listing of my movies. So, if I'm interested in more details about the movie, I have to go thru the process all over again: find the movie in Mezzmo, click the IMDb link, then navigate through the IMDb listing.

    This *obviously* isn't a serious bug -- just a behavioral issue that I find really annoying, because in v4 it worked the way I wanted it to...

    Hi,
    thanks for the feedback, I tested this here on a couple of android devices (a nexus 7 and a samsung galaxy s2) and I was unable to reproduce the problem. When I browse to details then click the imdb link and view the imdb page pressing the back button takes me back to the details page. Even browsing to an actor on the imdb page pressing back takes me back to details. If back is pressed twice then it will go back to the movie list but pressing back once should just go back to details. Can you please tell us more about how to reproduce this problem?

    Now (apparently after an upgrade yesterday) it works a little better, but is still not the way I'd like to see it behave.
    Viz., when I click the back button from details on the IMDb page, it takes me back to the movie title in Mezzmo (rather than the entire catalog).
    But the way it used to work, in v4 -- and the way that makes more sense to me -- is that as long as I'm cruising around details on IMDb, I stay there.
    E.g., I go to IMDb because I want to know the actor playing that part, I find him, then look at other stuff he's been in, then I want to look at a different actor in the same movie -- well, I can't get there, because as soon as I hit Back to stop reading about Actor #1, Mezzmo takes me all the way back to Mezzmo. I want to stay in IMDb, until I tell you I'm finished. So, I dunno, others might disagree, but I preferred the v4 behavior, where IMDb was launched as a separate app. Maybe you could make this behavior selectable in M5?

    Hi,
    we will add better handling for the back button when viewing web pages so that pressing back will trigger going to the previous page. We will also add an option to launch the web page in a separate process.

    Tried out the Android Beta last night, and all is right with the world.
    In M5 settings, I can select whether I want to launch IMDb in M5's web browser or within the IMDb app (which I prefer).
    I can tool around the IMDb info as much as I want, and the back button takes me to the previous IMDb page.
    When I want to go back to Mezzmo, I just press the back button a second time.
    Perfect.
    Thank you.
