When I attempt to open a link that is supposed to open in a new window, it opens in a new tab the wrong window if I have two windows open and am clicking on the link from within the second window.  For, this happens when I click the left-hand "TD Canada Trust" link, unless I have already clicked the right-hand "TD Canada Trust" link.  It also happens with the POP configuration instructions in Gmail settings.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open two browser windows
2.Click link in second window targeted to open in a new window
Actual Results:  
Link does not appear in active window, but in a new tab on the first window.

Expected Results:  
Should have opened in a new tab on current window or in a new window, depending on settings.

Works fine for me using Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.4; en-US; rv:1.9b5pre) Gecko/2008032517 Minefield/3.0b5pre

What Firefox extensions do you have installed/enabled, if any?

Can you reproduce this bug if you temporarily use a clean profile (so no extensions, etc)?

Weird.  If you figure out how to reproduce the bug, please reopen it (or file a new one).
