User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090423 Firefox/3.5b4 GTB5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090423 Firefox/3.5b4 GTB5 Using the following settings: browser.links.open_external - 3 browser.links.open_newwindwo - 2 browser.links.open_newwindow.restrict - 0 FF 3.0.10 will open a link from an external application (e.g. thunderbird/shredder) in a new tab, but FF 3.5b4 will open a link in a new window. To recreate: send an email with a link, e.g. http://www.mozilla.org set the browser.links prefs as above in ff Using thunderbird (I used 3.0b3pre, aka shredder), open the email, click on the link. Using 3.0.10 you get a new tab, in 3.5b4 you get a new window. I don't know which is right - the 3.0.10 behavior is certainly preferred by me - but either this is the result of a bug fix or a regression in 3.5b4. What I'd really like is to be able to differentiate between links that want to open new windows inside FF and external links. I believe 3.0.10 does this - I allow it to open new windows as needed, but links from outside apps are opened in new tabs with using these settings. 3.5b4 removes this behavior. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open ff, set the following parameters: browser.links.open_external - 3 browser.links.open_newwindwo - 2 browser.links.open_newwindow.restrict - 0 2. Using thunderbird (or shredder 3.0b3pre) open an email with a link in it, click on the link 3. Observe that 3.5b4 opens a new window, while 3.0.10 opens a new tab Actual Results: 3.5b4 opens a new window Expected Results: expected a new tab - same a 3.0.10
3.5b99 (aka preview) behaves the same way.
My apologies - the problem was that I was using the Tab Mix Plus extension, and there wasn't a version for 3.5b4. I've obtained a test build that's compatible, and all is well.
