Well, that is not my experience. For example, only yesterday. But it would
be great if this problem is going away.

There are strict URL handlers and friendly URL handlers (which should
encompass anyURI and IRIs). The strict ones will fail if ":" is used. You
never know which one the program uses.

Actually, I guess the correct syntax is
but I have never used that.
