Posted by jshaw on Feb. 07 2008,05:27A quick trick to get Firefox to open Gmail in a new tab when you click an email address:
First copy and paste the following into beaver and save as /opt/gmailto.sh
Then open an xterm and type:
chmod 755 /opt/gmailto.sh
Then in Firefox, type about:config in the address bar and find the following line:
Double click it and enter /opt/gmailto.sh
And that's it, just be sure to add opt/gmailto.sh to /opt/.filetool.lst

Why use http at all when sylpheed is excellent for gmail with either POP or IMAP, and using gmail via POP and IMAP requires connecting via SSL?
