clinking links in email doesn't always open new tab if FF 20.0.1 is already open. Additional testing seems to indicate that this occurs when the last opened site was secure.

The same link in the same email will open FF 20 if it isn't open, which makes me think it has something to do with what sites are open in previously opened tabs.
Hi, are you using Seamonkey or another mail client? What tabs did you open when you encountered this issue? Was the link you tried to open already opened in another tab?

Works for me on Windows 7, 64 bits, with Firefox 22 beta 2, clicking a link on Gmail.

I use Outlook 2010

No, the link was not already open.

I'm unable to reproduce this issue on Windows 7x64.

Could you please try to see if this reproduces on the latest nightly?

I do not understand this "nightly" thing. Please note that you are using FF 26 and I am using FF 22.
