I had the issue with date and time picker also, but they went after a while, certainely after some update...

Thanks Matteo, for this very helpful article. I also have the problem with the http / https links, but I can at least work with 8.5.3 on 11.10

I got it working no problem but any HTTP: or HTTPS: links including links to connections don't work. Any thoughts on how to get these working?
