Build ID: 20020080605. I've seen it in todays build, don't know when it appeared over the weekend. Using other applications to open URL's (Mail & Slashdock tested) it changes focus to Navigator but does not open a new tab or the requested URL. Changing the setting to not open links from other applications in new tabs, just in new windows still works.
so this is a regression?

I can't reproduce this. Please try a recent nightly build, and give explicit steps to reproduce (including stating what your pref settings are in the Tabbed Browsing prefs tab.
Re-downloaded the build via ChimeraKnight 1.1 today. Build ID: 2002080605. Problem still exists. On new dual GHz G4, OS 10.1.5. I have tried all settings in the Tabs pref, but usually I have everything checked. The problem only happens when have the "Loading a page requested by another application" checked. Steps to reproduce: 1. Turn on "Loading a page requested by another application" pref. 2. Use other application to send a URL to default browser (this must be set in the Internet System Prefs to Chimera) I use OS X Mail and Slashdock. 3. Clickon link. Chimera window comes to front, but does not go to that page in a new tab (even if tab is not supposed to load in background). 4. Change Tabs pref to turn off "Loading a page requested by another application". 5. Try link in other app. It will load in a new Navigator window.
Build ID is 2002080605, dated 8/6/2002 (the most recent nightly that I can see). Make sure you are reading this comment in your email client, not reading it in Bugzilla using Chimera. 1. Set Preferences --> Navigation --> Tabbed Browsing --> "Loading a page requested by another application" to checked in Chimera. 2. Load a page in Chimera (www.cnn.com, for instance). 3. Click on this link in the email: http://www.slashdot.org 4. Focus will go to Chimera, then nothing. 5. Set Preferences --> Navigation --> Tabbed Browsing --> "Loading a page requested by another application" to UNchecked in Chimera. 6. Load a page in Chimera (www.cnn.com, for instance). 7. Click on this link in the email: http://www.slashdot.org 8. A new Chimera window will come up, and Slashdot will load. Note that the requested URL will ALWAYS load correctly if Chimera is not running, and is your default browser, regardless of setting.
Still works fine in my current developer build. Wait for the 8/7 nightly, and test again.
It may be fixed in today's build, but the latest publicly available build is still the same one as yesterday's. That could be why we are able to reproduce the problem today, while Simon can't.
Problem resolved in build 2002080905.
