User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.7; rv:41.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/41.0 Build ID: 20150929144111 Steps to reproduce: Clicking a link within Mail Actual results: Firefox opens with 2 windows. The window in front is empty, the window with the clicked URL opens in the background. Expected results: Only one window opens, with the URL which was shown in Mail. Firefox 40.x did not show this behaviour.
still persistent in 42.x branch
still persistent in 42.x branch, but behaviour has changed: the second window now appears in the background.
I can confirm this on mac. This may be a dupe of another bug, but terms like "links, open, window" are very common in bugzilla.mozilla.org. I'll try track down where the regression happened between 40 and 41. More info: This happens when opening a link from any third party app.
