User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9b3) Gecko/2008020511 Firefox/3.0b3

When clicking on an e-mail link in Apple mail, the Firefox 3.0b3 will open to the home page, but won't open to the link as it does with Firefox 2.0.0.12.
After Firefox 3.0b3 is running, when an e-mail link is clicked, it will then open to the e-mail link.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Click on e-mail link when Firefox 3.0b3 is not running.
2.Firefox 3.0b3 opens to home page only.
3.Re-click on e-mail link and then it will open in browser.
Actual Results:  
1.Click on e-mail link when Firefox 3.0b3 is not running.
2.Firefox 3.0b3 opens to home page only.
3.Re-click on e-mail link and then it will open in browser.

Expected Results:  
Clicking on an e-mail link, it should open in browser as it does in Firefox 2.0.0.12.

Expected that when clicking on an e-mail link, it will open in browser as it does in Firefox 2.0.0.12.
Does it work now with Firefox3.0.3 ?

Could this bug be reconsidered as the same symptom now occurs for FF 29 and 30 in Mac OS X 10.9? Please see further information in Firefox Support Forum (I'm the OP): 

http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=2849555

At least two other users confirmed having the same problem.

Many thanks.
