I have CTRL click set in my preferences to open links in a new tab. However, CTRL clicking on a link in an email message opens one tab then fails to open any more after that.
On further investigation, it looks like CTRL click doesn't work at all for any links in an email message. RIGHT clicking and selecting "Open in new tab" works just fine. I have closed and restarted several times to verify.
I see this too -- 1.7.5, Win2K. Working fine with same profile in 1.8a6-1217.

contentAreaClick.js was touched on the branch on 18/10/2004 by bug 249332 which I can't access - security bug, but the changes introduced the XPCNativeWrapper. It also was touched on 22/10/2004 by bug 265176 which I believe is a security bug as well, but I don't think the changes would have caused this bug. Also changing OS to all as that what this bug affects.
