If I start with a tab, for instance an unread posts results tab,
and I right-click and open one of the topics in a new tab,
then I get a new PM popup in that new tab and click it to go to my inbox,
it closes that new tab and hijacks the original tab with the search results to display my PM inbox instead of using the tab the PM popup was shown in.

Took me a few times to figure out exactly what was going on, when it's happened before I'd had multiple tabs open and found myself lost because of the hijack and just ended up starting over from what is now an inbox tab.

This happens in Opera.
I don't know about IE7.
I don't think Firefox will do it because it handles opening in new tabs via the context menu differently than Opera, Firefox severs the link to the opener.
