Thank you for your response Ian. The link you sent seemed to refer to the
opening of Location links within TileMill itself. I'm more concerned with
the interaction after a map is uploaded to MapBox. Hopefully this is the
same issue. I look forward to the fix in the next version of TileMill.
I don't believe I can downgrade my Ubuntu Tilemill install because I only
find the most current version of TileMill listed on the downloads page for

Hi Bryan sorry for the delay. We're working on this and will let
you know as soon as a fix is implemented. To reiterate, location
functionality is supported both the in the latest TileMill and Wax
releases, so you should have no problem integrating your maps with
Wax - it's only previews (i.e.
tiles.mapbox.com/account/map/your-map/) and embeds that will not
support wax. You can read more about the difference here
