Media links on the Documentation tab of a constituent record are used to store connections to information outside of CRM about constituents. When Google Chrome and Internet Explorer are both installed on a workstation, and Google Chrome is set as the default program, clicking on a media link hyperlink will open a new Internet Explorer window, even though Chrome is the default program. Clicking on the "Open file" button to access the link will open the file in Chrome, the default browser.
This started occurring in version 2.91 - in versions 2.9 and lower, clicking "Open file" or the media URL would open the link in the default program.
Download and install the latest version and patch, if applicable.
