Click links in Evolution and other gnome apps



Recently a change has been made (and by recently I mean the last few
months) where links clicked in gnome applications (like evolution) load
in a new tab in Firefox.  This is a nice idea, except when Firefox is
open, but on another window.

It took me quite a bit of clicking the first time to realize that the
link I was clicking on was loading, just in a browser in another window,
and what's more, it was loading a lot of times in seperate tabs because
I had clicked it a lot of times.

Am I the only one that this is driving bug shit?

While I like the idea of the link loading in another tab in an already
open firefox window, I also think that if the firefox window is on
another desktop, then it should either a/ use an already open firefox
window on the current desktop, or b/ if there is no firefox window on
the current desktop, open one and use this.

This is going to be a real usability issue for users when FC5 is
released, with users asking why clicking links in evolution doesn't open
them in firefox.

Is this driving others mad, and should it be filed in
bugzilla.redhat.com or upstream in bugzilla.gnome.org?
