In RedHat Linux, gnome window system, in the System->Preferences menu,
there is an item Windows and in that popup dialog there is a check box
"Select windows when the mouse moves over them".  If you check that,
then when you move the mouse from the browser back to evolution,
you will be in evolution with the browser still running.

Where do I find System>Preferences?

Also, I think perhaps I didn't explain what I wanted.  Now when I click
on a link in a mail message, I get put in a new tab in my browser, which
is on a different page.  When I go back to the page containing
evolution, it is still running.  I would like to suppress the switch
from evolution to the browser.  I would prefer looking at the link in
the browser after I  have finished reading my mail.  I managed somehow
to get things to work that way on another machine, but I don't remember
how I did it
