Given that the shell ultimately handles API calls to open new windows, this behavior is not totally unexpected depending on how your app is designed.
What exactly are you doing to call the URL in your code?
It works in everything else. I have set popups, as they call them, to open in new tabs. It's a known issue since IE7. When the user presses the hotkey on an open browser I get the path to the exe and add the url as command line. It's up to the browser to be set to open additional urls in tabs.
It works with Opera, Firefox, Chrome, MaxThon 2, MaxThon 3. Only one I found where it doesn't work is IE.
