A new TAB

Please.

I know it seems like a really small/insignificant thing, but having this occur by default, instead of having to right-click would increase my productive by like two hundred percent

Thank you!

The OP is aware of that option and would prefer an option to make that action the default.

Preferences -> Mail & Newsgroups:
[x] Switch to new tabs when opened

Ah! Thank You!
(But perhaps that option should be on "Message Display" with the window options. Just sayin')

And here I thought someone was merely being nice/helpful instead of passive aggressive...

EDIT: Actually... That doesn't seem to be a real viable option anyway. Because if you open a message in a new tab, then attempt to return to the original mail list tab, you get this:

Instead of the message list. (You can get the sidebar to return by clicking the grippy, but the mail window remains blank. Closing and reopening the mail & newsgroup window returns things to normal)

So I guess my feature request still stands

It is working here as it should.
A double-click opens the message in a new tab and a middle click closes the actual tab and returns to the last opened folder of the message list as it should.
Have you tried in save mode with all extensions disabled?

I did. But of all that is really an issue for another thread.
