It would be great to have Thunderbird work like firefox.  When you open a message (eml file), it opens in a new tab in the currently opened Thunderbird instance.  When you want to create a new message, it would appear as a new tab in the same window.  And probably a few other thing that coud be done that I did not think of yet.

I concur 100%.  I am kinda baffled why this isn't an option.  PLEASE PLEASE make it an option so when I goto Preferences | Reading and Display | Open Messages in : that I can ALSO choose 'New Tab'.  It seems so obvious, in fact without this option, personally I don't see the point of even having tabs otherwise.
