Client gets message "Please open your invoice a different way"


I'm using QB Pro Desktop 2019.  I email my clients their invoices from QB and have the option turned on allowing them to pay with a credit card using Intuit Payment Solutions.


One client just emailed a screenshot that shows the message she gets when she click on the "View and Pay Invoice" button.  It says "Please open your invoice a different way.  We're sorry.  Directly clicking the invoice button doesn't work from your email system."  It instructs them to right-click on the button and paste that link into a new browser or tab.


I bcc myself on all my invoices, so I have the same invoice she does.  I tried clicking on it and got the same error.  I tried to copy the link as instructed and pasted it into a new tab on Chrome and then a new window in Firefox, same error.


No other client has indicated this is an issue, but I'm worried that something is wrong.

Am I missing something?


Screenshot is attached.


Thank you,
