I found a strange behavior in the stock browser. When clicking a mailto link the mail app opens with a new email. Okay so far. After sending the mail, you close email app and browser. When you then start the browser again, it starts with the mailto link and opens a new email again.

The browser never should remember a mailto link as the last site.

Thanks for reporting this. It looks like browser database is storing all the URLs and thus on start up when restoring the state browser application opens also links like: mailto. We are planning on changing this so that in startup the browser would load only the last known real web page and then this would not happen.

Could this be made optional? For me it's very unlikely that I want to open the last visited page, and in some situations it can even be embarrassing ;)
