Gmail links sometimes relaunch Gmail rather than quickly opening the email
I am using the Gmail Chrome extension for ToDoIst. I use the "TDAdd" button in gmail and it adds a new TodoIst task with the link to my mail in my ToDoIst Gmail popup window. I save that task OK.
The issue is when I click on the link in the ToDoIst Gmail popup window to open my email. Some of the time the link immediately opens the email. But some of the time (maybe half?) it launches Gmail all over again (in the same browser window), so I see the Gmail "loading" bar etc, and then after 10 sec of so of that loading, then I see my email.
Is there a way to make the link always open the quick way and never have to reload Gmail?
I haven't yet been able to figure out a pattern of when it does it the slow way versus the quick way. Closing the browser and re-starting it doesn't seem to cause it as I can still get the quick way to work sometimes. Is it because an email was recently opened and so cached somewhere?
Any ideas? Is this something in the set up on my end, or something that needs to be fixed from your end?
I am running the latest stable version of Chrome with no extensions running.
