Clicking on a link in the message window hits the server twice. This is problematic for sites which email a link to verify an account, as some of them check to see if an account has already been verified. This would confuse a lot of people.
right clicking on a link and selecting "Open in New Window", it does not double tap. I re-checked this in 2002071608 trunk, and it still happens there as well.
Looks like good ol' cache problem. Please look at bug 121084 and check if your bug is sensitive to cache settings in the same manner. If yes, then it's most likely a dupe.
My cache setting is set to "When the page is out of date" People mentioned that they had the image loading problem with multiple cache settings. I don't understand why right clicking and choosing "Open in new window" would change anything in the way the cache works.

Can you provide a specific site with a specific with email link? I believe this might be either fixed by bug 121084 or will be fixed with bug 89419, but would like to check. (seth sorry to poke my nose in this)
I don't have a specific site on hand, but try sending yourself an email with a url in it, pointing to a server where you can tail the logs. Here is what my logs look like: 220.127.116.11 - - [03/Apr/2003:14:56:05 -0500] "GET /fsdfsd HTTP/1.1" 404 96 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030403" 18.104.22.168 - - [03/Apr/2003:14:56:06 -0500] "GET /fsdfsd HTTP/1.1" 404 96 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030403" 22.214.171.124 - - [03/Apr/2003:14:56:06 -0500] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 335 "-" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030403" 126.96.36.199 - - [03/Apr/2003:14:56:06 -0500] "GET /images/splash.gif HTTP/1.1" 200 143362 "http://www.snuggleexpress.com/" "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030403" I only clicked once. I have the server set up with a custom 404 redirect. The logs show only one redirect happening...
just an additional note.. I don't know if this makes a difference.. I did not read the maybe-related bugs very thoroughly, but this one does not deal with any images. Obviously the cache is involved in both cases.. but this is a fresh made-up link. It shouldn't ever be in the cache when you click on it.
