Is it just my imagination, or has the behavior of opening web links from within email messages changed with Thunderbird 0.9?
It seems to me that with previous Tbird releases when I clicked on links within email they opened up a new browser window to display the page.
Now the links open up in the currently active browser window, replacing whatever content was previously in that window.
I think I liked the old behavior better. I don’t see any preference settings about this, and a quick google search didn’t turn up any obvious help on the question.
Comments are still off, so email any suggestions, please.
Update – Michal wrote in saying “In Firefox, check Preferences -> Advanced -> Tabbed Browsing. There should be three behaviors for you to choose.” And indeed there are three preferences for “Open links from other applications” in either a new window, a new tab in the most recent window, or the most recent tab/window. Cool! I choose to open in a new tab in the most recent window. Gotta love that Firefox.
