    Sometimes links clicked from within the BlackBerry® Bridge Messages application do not open in the Bridge Browser.  They sometimes attempt to open in the standard Browser Application on the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet instead. 

    This may lead to an issue where an intranet link will fail to open due to the incorrect broswer being used.

    This is a previously reported issue that is being investigated by our development team. No resolution time frame is currently available.

    The only workaround is to manually enter the URL in the Bridge Browser Application to get to the website.
