Figma Links Not Opening in Desktop App, Despite Setting

Anyone else having an issue opening Figma links in their desktop app? I’m using MacOS and trying both Chrome and Safari.

The link does switch focus to the Desktop App, but it doesn’t open up to the linked file/page/frame. Turning the “Open in Desktop…” setting off allows the link to open correctly, but in the browser.

I’m experiencing the same issue (I think?).

Figma links only open the browser, despite having “Open links in desktop app” turned on.

Same for me… spent almost an hour trying to get access to a file in the Desktop app, and no result…
