Using links in project description crashes

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the Bug you’re experiencing:
Using links to tasks in other projects in the project description results in a “Asana needs to be reloaded” message.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a new project
  2. Under the project details, into the description field, enter a link to a task in a different project (same team)
  3. After the URL changes to the name of the task, click on it
  4. Asana crashes, but after reload it will load the right task (you can use Reload button, or Dismiss button and click on the link in the task mini-popup)

Browser version:
Version 84.0.4147.89 (Official Build) (64-bit)

@Mention links crash when used inside Project Details popup.

Whenever I use an @mention link to another Project Asana crashes and a popup appears: “Asana needs to be reloaded”.

This is a new bug as we have many projects with @mention links within the “Project Details” which previously worked without issue.

HI @Robert_Frisby
I just tried and didn’t have the issue maybe it was a temporary glitch…
