Malformed LBRY URL causes app to show blank green screen #959
If a user clicks a hyperlink such as lbry://badlink, (with a comma, or possibly other characters), the LBRY app shows a blank green screen. Need to refresh the app with ctrl-shift-R to reload.

Commenting out this bit in lbryURI.js prevents the green screen. It seems that a URL is handled correctly, the thrown exception shows in the console, but the processing stops there.
Without this bit below, a bad URL just leads to the search page with "There's nothing at this location." message.
