URL to open Compose mail in new window

Asked by Hansen on 2013-03-07

I have made a custom URL in "Compose" in the preferences, so that instead of opening gmail with a new compose mail in the corner, I get an new clean tap with only the new compose mail.

https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&shva=1

The question are, what piece of code do i need to ad, to make it open in a new separate window instead of a new tap? -and possible in a predefined size?

I found the "--new-window" option, but it somehow messes with the url, so chromium just opens a new gmail window.

This is what i put in the Compose field:
Exec:chromium-browser --new-window https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&shva=1

Hi Hansen,

> Exec:chromium-browser --new-window https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&shva=1

I think putting the URL into quotes should help:

    Exec:chromium-browser --new-window 'https://mail.google.com/mail/?ui=2&view=cm&fs=1&tf=1&shva=1'
