Some e-mails include an option to "View e-mail in browser".
When I do so, Firefox opens each link and image in the e-mail in a new tab, and eventually just a blank page.
How do I stop the separate tabs from opening and show the e-mail as one page? There is an option somewhere (I've fixed the problem before) but since the last update I can't find it.

If you are viewing an e-mail in the Firefox web-browser and your web mail provider offers to "View e-mail in browser" - that seems nonsensical. "View ... in browser" when you are using a "browser".

Are you opening those e-mails in Firefox?
Or an e-mail application such as Thunderbird?
A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

This might not be relevant, but if you are running Microsoft Office Outlook and using the "View in Browser" link or menu item: This feature generates an MHTML file which is best viewed in Internet Explorer. Firefox 57+ doesn't have any add-ons that support that format.
