stupid user (me) behavior: option-clicking on e-mail address hangs in download bar
(Firefox :: Keyboard Navigation, defect)
(Reporter: dls, Unassigned)
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090615 Firefox/3.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1) Gecko/20090615 Firefox/3.5 This isn't really a "bug" but stupid user behavior that might be handled slightly more gracefully. I accidentally option-clicked on an e-mail address instead of control-clicking to copy to clipboard. What I get for switching from Mac to Linux regularly. Closed download manager without paying attention to the "download" not having completed. The e-mail address "download" stayed in the download manager, and for the rest of the day, each time I resumed my laptop, Firefox dutifully opened a Thunderbird composition window for each tab I had open until I killed the download. Perhaps you want to leave this behavior as-is to punish people like me who don't pay attention. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. option-click an e-mail address 2. suspend laptop 3. resume laptop Actual Results: thunderbird opened a composition window for each tab in firefox, each time i resume the laptop. Expected Results: only passed the address to the preferred mail program once?

Should be command-click, not option-click. If I close that tab, created by the command-click, I can't seem to restore that tab.
