That sounded great to me, and I've always really wanted this to work,
so I tried it.
Same as always. No matter what I set in Firefox's advanced section,
links in TBird ALWAYS open in a new Firefox window.
Do other people seriously have this working (without the
above-mentioned extension)? I'm using the FC3 packages, nothing
special or custom, but no matter what I do, links from TBird never
start a new tab in the existing FF window.
