iOS - browser opens when not viewing story


This story, the most recent in this site as of this writing, automatically opens Safari for me when it gets loaded into NewsBlur.  (This includes while viewing stories before/after it since the pages are preloaded).…

Ideally a story that isn’t even being viewed shouldn’t be able to steal focus from NewsBlur…


So I can confirm this is happening, although I’m not sure what to do about it. It’s because I allow iframes in story content. I can quite easily disable them, but some publishers use iframes for content and metrics. 

If I decide to automatically filter out iframes, I wonder if it will have a negative effect on other feeds.

I’m guessing there is no way to easily prevent the launch itself, rather than the iframe loading? It’s somewhat annoying that Safari launches when I view the story, but more annoying that it launches when viewing adjacent stories. I had been keeping this story unread all day until I got back to my Mac.
