Desktop App no longer opens Chrome windows for connection links

Description

In version 4.3 of the desktop app when a connection link is created for plugins such as GitHub or Jira, nothing happens when you click the link.

After speaking with members of the Integration team, it seems this may have been introduced by the newer Electron version in the desktop.

Steps:

  • Install and enable GitHub plugin on a Mattermost server

  • Login from the desktop app

  • Type `/github connect`

  • Click the resulting link
    Expected: Desktop app opens a Chrome window to authenticate and map user
    Observed: Nothing happens

QA Test Steps

See description for steps. Use v4.3.0-rc3 or later.
