<tip type="Mozilla">
Sick of windows being reused when clicking on a mail link with mozilla
1.x as your default browser? To force "open all external links in a new
window"-type behaviour, add the following lines to your user.js file
(create it if it doesn't exist, in the same place as prefs.js):

user_pref("browser.always_reuse_window", false);
user_pref("advanced.system.supportDDEExec", false);
