Often when I encounter a link that will open a new window I am forced to double
click in order for that window to show up.  The only place I can think of right
now where this happens regularily is when using Yahoo Mail and I am composing a
new message.  If I click the word To: in the To line to open my address book I
need to click a second time in order for the window to open up and allow me to
select the people who are going to recieve my message.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a yahoo mail account
2. Enter some addresses into your address book
3. compose a new message
4. Click the link labeled To: on the first line of the new message where you
would type in the address.  You will need to click the link twice.  At least I do.
Actual Results:  
The link opened after I double clicked

Expected Results:  
Should have opened on the first click and not required a second click.
