In thunderbird 3, I can open new tabs if I middle-click, but the behaviour I want is for left-click to open a new tab if there is not already a folder open for a given tab; or to switch to the tab displaying that folder if there is.

Is there a configuration setting or addon which will make thunderbird behave like that?

From Thunderbird 3 Features :

Right-clicking on messages or folders will open them in a tab in the background.

OK... but how do I get them to open with a left-click, and how do I get them to be one per folder? – Simon Dec 10 '09 at 15:02
I don't believe you can do that with a left-click. – harrymc Dec 10 '09 at 15:18
