I edit a file with mcedit (F4).
In this file, there's a link. The line that contains this link is very large. So, the end of the link doesn't appear on the screen.
If I click on this link with my mouse and press CTRL key in the same time, the link is opened in my web navigator (Mozilla Firefox 85.0.1 on Linux Mint Cinanmon 20.1).

What should work :
The opened URL in Firefox should be the same than the link in the file.

What doesn't work :
The opened URL is wrong, the end of the URL is missing. I suppose it's because the end of the link is hidden on the screen by mcedit (see screenshot), even it exists in the file.

This is not an issue of mcedit. This is an issue of terminal emulation program (like gnome-terminal). The terminal emulator recognizes the link in the screen content. mcedit just doesn't know about that.

my https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=409994 is related, though even that would help only with urls that are wrapped, but not truncated.
