Seafile internal links don't work in chrome

My company uses only Apple devices. I added a xlsx file to a library in seafile. Created an internal Seafile share link. Sent the link in an email to colleagues but the link doesn’t open when using Chrome. Instead, it just opens a google search. The link also doesnt show as a clickable link within gmail. I have to manually copy and paste the link into the address bar.

seafile://openfile?repo_id=&path=

The link opens in Safari without a problem.

This has happened on two separate Mac’s.

How do I get it working in Chrome?

anyone?? nobody from support can help?
