The new tab stays in the background (as espected) The tab title (on the tab itself) reads the anchor url: "mailto:email@example.com" The browser title (when *this* tab is selected) is just the browser name There is no tab content (just a gray tab, no canvas at all) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.go to any url with a mailto anchor 2.press the CONTROL key 3.click on the link Actual Results: As said before a new tab its open in the background (as espected if it were a standar link instead of a mailto: link) Expected Results: i'm not sure. but it is my feeling this is not the expected behaivior for average user (nor for me). I did not expect this new tab to open at all.
Does this dup to the Seamonkey bug 97032?
(In reply to comment #1) > Does this dup to the Seamonkey bug 97032? yeah. it seems the same... i didn't find that one (sorry about that) as i didn't think it could happen the same with new windows (using SHIFT instead) as it does. should'nt the browser check the protocol before it does open a new tab.. and if the protocol is supported via another app, just let it go?
