User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040614 Firefox/0.8 There should be an option in the preferences for dealing with links generated outside of firefox (outlook, links on the desktop, etc.): It should allow the user to choose to open these links in one of three ways: 1) Replace current firefox session's foreground tab's contents, ie: current window 2) Open a totally new browser window 3) Open a new tab in the current session per the user's preferences on how new tabs are opened This should be a relatively simple change. If I knew the code, I would submit a patch. As it is, I figure this is one of those '5 minutes for someone who knows the code, 5 days for someone who doesn't' kind of changes. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Click a link in an external program. 2. See firefox 0.9 open a new window, even when you want it to make a new tab Actual Results: Firefox opens a new browser window instead of the tab I wanted it to... Expected Results: Open my external link in a new tab.
