I have the same problem, also with email-app: when i follow a link in email-app and browser is already opened, browser appears but it doesn't open the link. If i close the browser and click on a link in email-app, browser opens and loads the linked page.

No matter from what application. Tried email, Sailorgram and Piepmatz, always the same.

For me, it worked to remove all files from ~/.local/share/applications and reboot the phone. (Thanks to Leszek for this hint!).

That did the trick, thanks! Did you use Mimer application to change default browser? I wonder if that messed up this?

@WilbertS Yes and No. Somehow Default Browser changed from Jollas Browser to Webcat. I used Mimer than to change Default Browser back to Jolla's then, afterwards the problem occured. Don't know if the update to SFOS3, a Webcat-Update or Mimer App caused the Problem. Leszek, the Guy who makes Webcat and Mimer than gave me the hinthow to solve the Problem.
