Fb 0.6 opened the URLs in the last active Fb window. I think this is the better way to handle URLs. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Set Firebird as your default browser 2. Launch Firebird 3. Click on a URL in a program other than Firebird Actual Results: The URL is opened in a new window rather than in the existing Fb window Expected Results: The URL should have been opened using the last active Firebird window
Maybe it's the desired behaviour. I can't say for sure if it is. It's better (IMHO) to close an unused window than clicking back on the window just loaded and opening a new window for Windows/Firebird satisfaction. The machine should work for me, not the opposite. However, a pref for it would be nice...
This bug isn't showing up for me any more. I uninstalled Fb 0.6.1, completely deleted my profile (which I hadn't done before installing 0.6.1) and reinstalled 0.6.1. Now everything is working like it did in 0.6, links are opened in the last active Fb window which IMHO is the best way to handle outside links. I'm closing this bug, marking it as resolved: WORKSFORME
