Messenger Lite, Links Not Working

Dec 30, 2016

I'm using the version of MIUI and I have a problem with Facebook Messenger Lite. All links withing a conversation refuse to work. Tapping them either has no reaction at all or shows the "seen:" details, just like tapping on a normal coverstation post.

The weird thing is it was working at first (on MIUI Global and a few versions of back), but suddenly stopped on its own - no browser, the app itself, or the ROM were updated in any way. My brother has the same issue on his Mi4c.

Any way to resolve this? Using the full version of Messenger is bad for battery life ;)
