When I click on a link in Thunderbird, it opens a new Chrome browser window, rather than opening a tab in an existing Chrome window.

This has only happened in the last few days. Can't think of any related changes that have been made.

How do I revert back to opening in a tab in an existing Chrome window?



  • have you changed chrome to the default

  • Yes, Chrome is the default, and it was downloaded and installed only a month ago. UPDATE: since yesterday, Thunderbird web links have been opening in the existing window of Chrome in a new tab. I haven't changed anything.

The symptoms resolved themselves without me changing anything.
