In the sidebar, we use nsIWebProgressListener::onLocationChange to watch for clicks, and move them into browser tabs.  This is causing problems with sidebar providers that change window.location as part of their authentication or api use, resulting in unwanted empty tabs being opened.

using docShell.isAppTab=true works wonders, fixes login in sidebar, etc.
