This patch changes it so that social bookmarking is handled in a new tab within liferea instead of in the browser.
With the current behaviour (opening social links) in your configured webbrowser we ensure that the login credentials do persist (if the user has chosen so in the browser). By moving the social login into Liferea we ensure that the end user has to login each time anew.
I think this would not be a good idea. Nonetheless I do understand why it would be better to have the dialog open up in a tab.
What do you think?
Strange.. With the few websites I tested it with on my machine I didn't need to log in each time.
I personally think that work should be done so that handling link bookmarking can be handled in a tab (or even a popup window) then leave the current behavior of handling it in the browser as an option. But I know one of the goals of the project is simplicity and I don't know if that is adding too much complexity.

After retesting I think you are right: Webkit somehow keeps the cookie during the session. Therefore I think your patch makes sense.

Thanks for the work!
