A 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/

Code Sample

firefox -remote "openURL(`echo $1 | sed 's/mailto://'`,new-tab)"

Then open an xterm and type:

chmod 755 /opt/

Then in Firefox, type about:config in the address bar and find the following line:

Double click it and enter /opt/

And that's it, just be sure to add opt/ 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?
