Wrong email link behavior

When I add a task with link (https://www.dropbox.com/s/iosluryzdnc0jav/2014-05-06_15-19-19_000118.png) and edit it - I can see all the data (https://www.dropbox.com/s/6pjip4lwha8ccu2/2014-05-06_15-19-26_000119.png).

When I add a task with email link (https://www.dropbox.com/s/4x3swhxkyrwx2bp/2014-05-06_15-19-52_000120.png) and edit it - I can NOT see any text exept the link text (https://www.dropbox.com/s/dg60u440kuiha6i/2014-05-06_15-19-56_000121.png).

If I try to edit it (https://www.dropbox.com/s/ypfpx7tetc88g3x/2014-05-06_15-20-07_000122.png) - all non-link text will be erased.

The only way to edit that type of task - is to open it on iphone. It work fine there.

Original task name was "Random task with https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/#inbox/123 (email link)".

Hi Alexander,

Just to clarify, when you edit a task that is a link to an email, it ignores the words you added and gets erased, correct?

I just tried editing a task with a link an email yet it saved the changes that I made. What browser are you using and it's version? How long do you have to wait before the non-link text gets erased?

I'm using Chrome with the latest version.

Regards,

Clyde

Hello.

"Just to clarify, when you edit a task that is a link to an email, it ignores the words you added and gets erased, correct? "
Not a task that is a link - a task that has some text and a link.

The task before saving: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vh8hd2g04sxhpup/2014-05-06_15-43-55_000128.png
The task after saving: https://www.dropbox.com/s/p1857zsfzv1gmmg/2014-05-06_15-44-07_000129.png
The task in edit mode: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ne2gtkaw7yjy1us/2014-05-06_15-44-11_000130.png

So there is no way to change the text "Random task with", but I can change the link text (in that case the text "Random task with" will be erased).

"What browser are you using and it's version?"
Firefox 28, Chrome 34. I've been experiencing that issue for a while - just decided to post it now. So that's not a last-browser-version issue.

"How long do you have to wait before the non-link text gets erased?"
I don't wail at all. The text will be erased only if I edit it.
