How to prevent automatic switch to browser window when clicking on a hyperlink?
How to prevent the automatic switch from e.g. an email in evolution/thunderbird to firefox when clicking on a hyperlink in the email?
When I click on a hyperlink in an email (Ubuntu 12.04, Evolution 3.2.3 or thunderbird 13, although it happened in previous versions as well), the program window (Evolution) in focus changes to Firefox (default internet browser) to open the webpage. I would like that it does NOT switch automatically from Evolution to Firefox with every clicked hyperlink as I would prefer to read the whole email first and then "manually" go to the Firefox with the opened webpages.
I know that it is possible to prevent this automatic change of program window (email client to internet browser) as in Ubuntu 11.10 I had this preferred behaviour (before I now installed Ubuntu 12.04).
Does anybody know where I can change the preferences for this issue?
Thanks for any help, it bothers me daily.

Mlacunza posted an answer on another webpage and it works for me:
Open config window in Firefox: about:config
there find: browser.tabs.loadDivertedInBackground
and change to True.
