Links that launch a new tab do not load

I have the "open new windows in a new tab instead" option enabled but whenever I click on a link outside of the browser (e.g., in an email) a new tab is opened and the URL appears in the address bar. However, the page does not load. If I click on the address bar and hit enter it loads properly.

If I uncheck the above option, the links load in a new window properly.

In FF3, the links opened a new tab and loaded the page.

Is there a way to get FF4 to open a new tab and load the page?
