How to stop redirect from LDS.org to app? Bug!

Postby mrs.ritchie15 » Sun Oct 01, 2017 8:10 am

Hi there, every time I'm on my phone and try to find general conference on my mobile browser, I click on the link to conference and it automatically redirects me and opens my Gospel library app home page. It doesn't even open the conference talk within Gospel library... And October 2017 conference hasn't even been uploaded on the app anyway so it's frustrating because I can't listen to conference on my phone because of this. It's not just this conference that I have problems with though, is there any way to turn off the redirect feature? When I want the browser I want the browser, not the app. Thanks for your help.

I'm given the option to open it with my browser or LDS Tools Gospel Library. But I'm sure if I click "Always" (always use LDS Tools), then I'd experience the same.

I'd suggest using the feedback feature in the app and explain that you're trying to reach the "live" conference.

Thank you! I probably clicked always without realizing it a long time ago

How do I undo the "Always" choice? I want to be able to send the link to friends and I can't do that with Gospel Library.

From the all-knowing Google:
  • Go to your Android Settings.
  • Select Applications.
  • Select the application that is currently set to open a file type — for example, Google Chrome. (In this case, it's GL)
  • Scroll down to Launch by default and tap Clear defaults.
You're all set.

The above directions don't work for me. I still can't open Conference 2017. Any other ideas.
