-> When the link is clicked, the current registration is dropped and the app restarts

Step to reproduce:

  • Create a new account
  • Add an email
  • Opens external mail client then click on the validation link

ACTUAL => Opens riot on a blank login page
EXPECTED => Continue the current registration

It looks like riot was making assumption on the link received by mail, and was trying to intercept it instead of the next_link (that is hit only as a redirect and thus not triggering the deep link);
The received link is now of unknown form, so cannot be catch.
The issue is that on some platforms (browser/os) the nextLink triggers a deeplink but is seen as an empty universal link that clears the current registration and restart a blank app.

For now i have disabled the nextLink functionnality. 9a6896c
Moving this to phase:2 and remove release-blocker

=> Need to think of a better way to re-enter the app after validation
