    I have a LG G6 cellphone. I am not able anymore to open links received in Messenger. Either a recipe, a newspaper article, etc. I click on it and nothing.

    It used to open in a browser or in the Facebook app but noting now. Here what I tried already:

    - In the Messenger app, went under my picture, under Photos and medias and check the "open links in browser": nothing
    - Powerd off and restarted my cellphone: nothing
    - Uninstalled and installed it again, the messenger app: nothing

    What am I missing?
    Merci!

    Thanks @mustang7757 for the reply. I did go and check storage permission and it's not working. Any others clues? Cheers

    Welcome to Android Central! What if you uncheck that "Open links in browser" option? I'm wondering if that option is meant to allow opening links in the messenger app's own rudimentary browser (rather than you main browser app, like Chrome). Since that phone is old, it's possible that the functionality to open links within the messenger app's own browser is no longer working correctly. So it'd be better to try to open the links using an external browser like Chrome.
