That depends on the setting in Edit > Preferences > Browser > Link Behavior and follows the option chosen for "Links from other applications" (which I'd agree is not very intuitive).

Did you change this setting, or if not, any other recent change such as new add-ons installed?

The settings are always the same. In version 2.44 with the same settings its ok.
Tools > Add-ons Manager will open in a new tab.

Any difference with Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled > [Continue in Safe Mode]?

Effect is REPRODUCIBLE with  English SeaMonkey 2.45  (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:48.0)  Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0 Build 20160710233343  (Default Classic Theme)  on German WIN7 64bit:

Data Manager, PW-Manager, Cookie Manager, Image Manager open an own dialog window instead of a new TAB.

Bug or feature? Some more research required!.

Link Behavior  "Links from other applications" = New TAB in current Window. Changes in this preference have no influence.

@reporter:
Do you observe any disadvantages of the new behavior?

No, but it should be the same as Add-ons Manager.
This is a new feature. If you want to open it in a tab set suite.manager.dataman.openAsDialog to false.

See Bug 1255354.

Closing the bug. Please reopen it if toggling the pref doesn't work for you.

Hmm, I should have remembered that, especially given that I had commented in the other bug:

I'll spin off a new bug for the prefpane.

Yeah, suite.manager.dataman.openAsDialog;false works fine.

And the suite.manager.addons.openAsDialog;true works well, but I prefer it with the default false.

I'll work on getting some checkboxes for those into Edit > Preferences (bug 1287289).

Actually, this still applies in addition to the new hidden preferences and may prevent you from opening them in a browser tab. That looks more like a bug than a feature, thus I've filed bug 1287642 on this.
