environment: netbsd-4, i386, head pkgsrc, gnome, firefox3 I have a script which does essentially (with a passed URL): firefox3 -remote 'openurl("about:blank", new-tab)' and have pointed thunderbird at this for a url handler. With firefox2, this used to work fine - a new tab would appear in the running firefox, and nothing else would happen. Usually firefox is in a different desktop. Now, the firefox window moves to the current desktop. I found this, which seems relevant: http://sheep.art.pl/2007-09-08_Firefox_jumping_between_workspaces_in_XFCE As a workaround, using new-window instead of new-tab seems to create a new window on the current screen, which can then be closed, leaving the existing firefox window unchanged. Any advice (other than don't run gnome)? I didn't find any settings to control this in firefox or gnome.
