User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030516 Mozilla Firebird/0.6

I recently switched to the Firebird/Thunderbird combo from Mozilla 1.4 and it's
great.  The only thing I feel like I lost from the move is now when I'm going
through my emails I can only click on links and they open in whatever tab is on
top in Firebird.  I get a lot of emails with links and I used to open them all
in seperate tabs from MozMail and it was very convenient.  I'm sure this would
take some coordination with the Firebird team.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on a couple links in E-Mail.
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Only open in the main browser window.

Expected Results:  
Open in additional tabs, in a similar fashion as to how Mozilla Mail does it.

read the help site. it has information on how to configure firebird to open new
link requests in tabs. It's browser functionality and has nothing to do with the
mail client. 

closing as there is no bug here in thunderbird (nor in firebird, you can make it
work in firebird by reading the help site)

I think this is the part of Thunderbird Help mscott referred to:

applications open new windows".
