URL links not working

They have been broken for me for some timer. I used to be able to insert a link and they worked great. I can't get it to work in either Chrome or Firefox. Cache has been cleared. The text in the url link boxes is white, which is annoying.
This sounds more like a CSS Error somehow. Have you gotten this error when disabling extensions too? Is this using Light Mode or Dark Mode? I personally do not recognize YOUR problem, though I've got a DIFFERENT “URLs not working” problem; perhaps additional information will help accelerate a way to solve whatever problem you are experiencing? Do you mean you cannot [text](URL), example: [Roll20](<a href="" rel="nofollow"></a>) or do you mean you cannot see a URL in Chat when just plain pasted into chat, like this: <a href="" rel="nofollow"></a> because, MY issue involves using a “(” or “)” in a [Text](URL) section's URL portion, because there are URLs one might want to link to cleanly where the URL includes a “(” or “)”, but the URL's “)” will break the URL Parsing Engine on Roll20; so, you might want to edit your Title to include a little extra description beyond just “URL links not working”.

This likely refers to the display of text in the in-game dialog box for inserting a url while using dark mode. It displays as a very light gray on white. I have fixed it on my own computer with Stylus, but it is a bug that still needs to be corrected on Roll20's part. If you use stylus, it can be fixed with this code: .note-link-url.form-control.note-form-control.note-input, .note-link-text.form-control.note-form-control.note-input{ &nbsp; &nbsp; color: var(--dark-surface1, --color-surface2); } There are other issues related to this that still don't work properly, and there may be css hierarchies that keep it from being an easy fix. But the code above at least makes the URL input area visible. AviCat, let me know if you are interested in that code, but need any assistance in using it.
Just wanted to say that I'm having the same issues. I can't read the text in the URL link insert since they updated the fonts somewhat recently. Additionally, it seems to have broken some of the embedded rolls.

Reason for this Problem is 1 CSS line. If you remove that line, it is fixed. I highlight it in the following screenshot: I already sent a Help Center request so the devs are aware of it, pointed them to the thread with the solution and also attached screenshots for them. It should be only a matter of time until it gets fixed...
I'm having the same "invisible text on URL entry" problem (light text on light background).&nbsp; Not using dark mode, am using Firefox. Until I found this thread, I thought I was doing something wrong, as it's been a while since I tried to enter a URL. Btw, if you click/drag in the text entry box, it will select and highlight the text, so you can see what's actually there.
