wfm TB 31.3.0 on WinXP can you try if linkification works in TB Safe Mode, Help > Restart with all addons disabled can you attach msg source as testcase, perhaps there's something in source code not visible on surface I'm also surprised the link in the signature is not linkified
Reporter (Robert), can you please answer comment 1? Otherwise there's nothing we can do for you.

I don't believe we auto-linkify URLs in HTML mail. I don't think we *should*, either; if the sender chooses not to linkify it, we should respect that. We could do like Firefox and allow opening the link via the context menu, though. This is probably a bug in GitHub's mail composer, since links work just fine in the GitHub mails I get.
