So I play a lot of Second Life. One of the things I enjoy doing is shopping around and visiting new places in the game. Most folks use something called a "SLURL" which looks something like this:

Upon clicking that a secondlife page opens up displaying the location with a "visit this location" button.

Normally, when I click that button it would send the info to my Second Life game and present me with a pop up in-game so I can visit the place.

However now, each time I click the "visit this location" button the browser would fire up another instance of Second life. Even if I login with that new one it continues to open up another copy of the game for me despite it already running.

Any ideas on how to fix this would be greatly appreciated
