User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030507 I receive emails with a link to a TIF file on the server. I have a helper application designated in my preferences to allow me to view the file. Under previous versions of Mozilla, when I clicked on the link to the tif file in the email, the helper application would open and allow me to view the link. Under Mozilla 1.4b, the browser is opened and focus is taken away from mail and then the helper application is opened. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. See above 2. 3. Actual Results: When I select the link and the helper application is opened, the browser is opened if not already open and focus to shifted to the browser and away from mail. Expected Results: I expect the helper application to open without opening the browswer or shifting focus to the browser if it is already open. This is an anoyance when reading through multiple emails with links. Because I use Mozilla mail to access fax images that we receive on a fax server, I find it very annoying; however, I realize that is not a major issue.
Confirmed; this is a result of the change to how you kick off the URL load, Seth....
