Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

Description:	Ubuntu 9.04
Release:	9.04

  Installed: 3.0.8+nobinonly-0ubuntu3
  Candidate: 3.0.8+nobinonly-0ubuntu3
  Version table:

I use reader.google.com to subscribe to some podcasts.  When displaying
a new podcast a flash mp3 player is displayed with a link next to it
saying "Popout".  In 8.10 when clicking on the popout link a small
window would appear with the player displayed.  in 9.04 when I click the
link it opens up a new tab but nothing loads in it.

I am able to work around this issue by changing the "New pages should be loaded in:" to be "a new window" instead of "a new tab" (which is my preference).
*note* in 8.10 I had it set to "a new tab".
