I'm using Pidgin and by default all URI handlers are sent to the default browser, which is Chrome in my case.
If I click on a spotify URI chrome opens with a blank window. This also happens if from a run dialog I do
chrome spotify:artist:7w5hVyH6GGdmswqTwHplgF. Now, if I enter this address in the URL bar myself and hit enter it works.
Is there any way to have chrome pass the custom URI when run via commandline?
