In Vienna 2.1.1.2109 and previous, I would go through and click on an article and then click on its header to open this article in a new tab in my browser (Firefox). When I was doing many of these in a row, the browser would usually start to fall behind in opening the URLs, but the requests would 'queue' so that I could still select and click on more headers in Vienna and eventually all the articles would get opened in new tabs in my browser.

With Vienna 2.1.2.2110, this is no longer always the case. If I select many more items while the browser is 'busy' opening the last selected item in a new tab, sometimes (not always) one of the new items gets lost and never makes it into a tab. That is, the 'queuing' of the requests seems to get interrupted in 2.1.2.2110 if multiple new 'Open Link in New Tab' requests come in, and is no longer 100% reliable.

    Vienna does not queue the requests. If any queueing is done, it would be handled by Mac OS X and/or Firefox. Have you updated either of those recently? The list of changes at http://forums.cocoaforge.com/viewtopic.php?t=12949 is the full list of changes in Vienna 2.1.2.

    Actually, I was using Vienna with multiple 'queuing' just yesterday before upgrading it, and didn't have the problem of dropped URLs. So no, there have been no changes to the OS (still Mac OS X 10.3.9) or Firefox (still 2.0.0.3) recently.

    It's always possible that the problem hasn't been observed previously, but I immediately noticed it (at least 3 URL's missing) upon upgrading to the latest Vienna, and I've never noticed this behavior before (I consider myself a heavy Vienna user).

    I can understand why one might think none of the changes look like they should have effected the behavior -- I'm puzzled as well. Still, it should be easy enough to verify.
