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.
