 I have the same problem as was reported on #10520.

 When I copy 1st URL from web browser
 1:45.0.1.deb1-1, i.e. firefox 45.0.1) and I paste it to message window of
 pidgin, it is OK.[[br]]
 But when I copy another URL from the browser and I paste it to the same
 message window, (visible) text of hyperlink change to new, but its
 (hidden, visible only by pointing cursor on it) "href" points to old, 1st,
 web site.

 It does not always happen. I cannot report when it appears and when it
 does not, because I do not know it.

 It is not problem of the latest pidgin, I have it for long years.

 When I make "Paste as Plain Text", problem disappears.[[br]]
 (When I paste it normally, then select link and make "Reset formatting",
 problem disappears, too.)

 I think I use neither special clipboard manager nor any desktop
 environment; I have plain
 [[https://parabola.nu/packages/community/x86_64/jwm/|JWM]] only.

 It happens if I disable all plugins in pidgin, too.

 I use the latest stable
 [[https://parabola.nu/packages/nonprism/x86_64/pidgin/|Pidgin]] 2.10.12
 2.10.12) ''"without support for unsafe and dangerous for privacy
 on the latest stable [[https://Parabola.nu/|Parabola]]
 version 4.4.6_gnu-1 with CPU architecture x86_64.[[br]]
 Pacman (the package manager of Parabola) reports me:[[br]]
 [[https://parabola.nu/packages/core/x86_64/glib2/|glib2]] version
 [[https://parabola.nu/packages/extra/x86_64/gtk2/|gtk2]] version
 [[https://parabola.nu/packages/extra/x86_64/gtk3/|gtk3]] vesion
 (In "Help" -> "Build Information" of Pidgin, there is no info about
 version of glib and gtk.)
