Sounds like you are running into this bug:
What version of gnome are you running? The afformentioned bug was fixed
and the fix is in gnome 2.26.3. If you are running something past 2.26,
I would say there's prob. a configuration setting you can change in
gconf-editor to get the behavior you're looking for.

What I was used to in the past was that if I clicked on a link in Thunderbird or anywhere else, it would open a new tab ( that's the way that I have Firefox configured ) in Firefox, but FF would stay in the workspace where it was put.
