V3.5 for Mac OS. I updated today 7/7/09.  Web address links do not work. Clicking makes Firefox active, but No New Tab and No web address in the URL, etc. Dead.  Makes me manually copy and paste.  So simple, yet missed on the update.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
Click on any web address link, whether from email or text document.

Expected Results:  
Web address links do not work. Makes my selected browser active.  But nothing else.

Opens browser, new tab pastes URL and hits Enter to locate webpage.

Does it work if FIrefox is already open and you click a link in an external URL or does it also fail in this case ?

Firefox IS OPEN.  I have not tried it without.  I always have my browser open in another window.

Clicking brings Firefox to the front most, but nothing else.  Dead thereafter.

I have a problem in which clicking a link in another app will launch Firefox but not bring up the requested page.  However, if Firefox is already running, clicking from external apps works.

This seems to be a cross-platform problem.  I've having on Mac OS, but it's also reported in 502572 under Windows.
Reporter, are you still seeing this issue with Firefox 3.6.13 or later in safe mode or a fresh profile? If not, please close. These links can help you in your testing.
