Both Browser and Mail/News let you open a URL in a new tab, but not Address Book.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable the pref to allow Ctrl+click to open links in a new tab.
2. Click on a card in the "thread pane" of the address book that has a URL
3. Ctrl+click the URL that shows up in the "message pane".

Actual Results:  
The URL opened in an existing tab.

Expected Results:  
The URL should have opened in a new tab.

This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.

seem to even work.
