User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:6.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/6.0 Build ID: 20110713171652 Steps to reproduce: I received a newsletter (HTML) with an unsubscribe link (which was a mailto:...@...?subject=...&body=... link). I clicked this link. Actual results: A new tab opened with "Loading ..." in the caption. Then a message compose windows opened, with subject and body pre-filled. The tab stayed open, caption was still "Loading...", the tab itself was empty (white background). Expected results: The tab should not have opened, or at least it should have been closed when the message compose window opened.
Jens is this a regression ?
Never seen this before ... I've only seen similar things in Firefox, when a link is opened in a new tab and then Firefox recognises that it needs to download it. The "link opens tab" is an essential element of this bug - and TB did not have tabs for that long ...
I can't reproduce this, but maybe it's a regression from bug 64267? (Not that I can figure out how...)
Reporter do you still see this problem when using recent version of Thunderbird?

(In reply to Wayne Mery (:wsmwk) from comment #4) > Reporter do you still see this problem when using recent version of > Thunderbird? Nope. mailto: links directly open a compose window, http links open in Firefox ...

Doesn't this bug happen with a mailto link that also has target="_blank"?
Tested on Thunderbird 24.5.0 on Windows 7. Steps to reproduce: Open a new HTML composition window, insert the HTML code <a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" target="_blank">mail</a> and save the message as a draft, open the message in the Drafts folder, and click on the link. I see a new empty tab titled "Loading..." staying opened. I can open a new bug for this if necessary.
