That would not be a usable fix for me. That would only open up more
windows, also on the wrong workspace.

I don't have a feeling that this bug (I've seen some duplicates btw
(#204927, #197761)) really has the attention it needs. I still prefer
ff2 for usability over ff3, this bug only makes it much worse. Has this
issue made it on any 'critical release buglist' yet?
