Attached patch patchSplinter Review
Steps to reproduce:
1. Open about:home
2. Click the "About Mozilla" link

Expected results: About Mozilla page opens in a remote tab
Actual results: About Mozilla page opens in the original local tab

After you do this, you can browse to ether pages in the local tab.  Users could easily do this inadvertently.  This is especially bad in current tileless builds where zooming is broken in local tabs.

I can live with this nice simple fix. If we need something more, we might need to add code to content.js to watch for opening links and send messages back to chrome.

This is fine for now though.
