See steps to reproduce. This results in an Alert error: FAILED TO OPEN A BOOKMARK: 2147500035 And all open tabs disappear. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Go to a page that opens a pop-up window, in its own window (not in a tab) 2. Close all other Firebird windows except the pop-up window. 3. Start a new session of Firebird and attempt to middle-click on a link or bookmark to open that link in a new tab. Actual Results: FAILED TO OPEN A BOOKMARK: 2147500035 And all open tabs disappear. Expected Results: Opened a new tab. I do have the "Tabbrowser Extensions" extension installed, so this may or may not be the culprit, further testing will have to be done.
can you provide a URL where this happens? I don't understand what you mean by step 1.

WFM Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7b) Gecko/20040327 Firefox/0.8.0+ using Asa's comments as the test, I closed all the FireFox windows but Asa's comment window, then double clicked on the FireFox exe to get a new window, I was able to open links using middle click
I believe this was a bug with the Tab Preferences or Extensions extension. Haven't seen it in Firefox 0.8. Feel free to close.
Comment 4 from the bug reporter states that the bug has been resolved marking WFM
