Since upgrading, new pages open in an additional tab. I checked the appropriate box, but it didn't stop the problem.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open the browser, click on any bookmarked page, page comes up
2. Click on a URL in an EMail, and subject opens in the same window as a new tab
Actual Results:  
Got the subject in a new tab, same window. If I click on a second bookmark in same window, it goes to the new subject without tabbing. "Go back one page" (back arrow) brings you back to original subject

Expected Results:  
Opened the new subject in a separate window when clicking on a URL in the EMail
