Default FrireFox3 behaving badly :)

Since upgrading to firefox 3, FF has started behaving badly. If I click
on a link in say evolution in one desktop, with FF open in another, FF
will jump to the desktop where I clicked on the link. This is quite
off-putting to suddenly have FF move over the top of what you are doing
and disturbingthe workflow.

Is there a way to go back to the old behaviour of previous versions?
(where they stay'd put!)

Sadly, this bug was opened 3 months ago with no developer responses as of yet...
