Links in other applications opening in new windows now instead of tabs randomly

Randomly today after booting up my PC and opening firefox links I receive from other people on like AIM or Steam chat open a whole new window where as before they would just open a new tab. It's veryyyy annoying and I have the option "Open new windows in a new tab instead" on. I'm using aurora build by the way, if that matters.

Try to set the browser.link.open_newwindow.override.external pref to 3

Hey cor-el, thanks for the tip. I changed it from -1 to 3 but it doesn't seem to have any effect. Thank you for your time.

Try to ask in the daily thread or create a new thread on the MozillaZine Builds forum, maybe someone there knows an answer.
