STR:
- Open a new instance of the browser
- Search for "mozilla" in the searchbar using Google
- In the now opened results-page, search for "firefox" using the site's searchbar (hit enter!)
- Now right-click on the "Back"-button in the navbar, and middle-click on the entry for the "mozilla"-search to reopen it in a new tab

ER:
The "mozilla"-resultspage is shown.

AR:
After showing the mozilla-results for a second, the page switches to showing the results for "firefox", thanks to Google Instant, and ultimately changes the title to "firefox - ..." as well. The URL is showing "mozilla" as the query, though.



I don't know how much of the problem is because of Firefox and how much is because of Google's usage of all kinds of JS-tricks.

FWIW, in Chrome, the same procedure is working. IE doesn't offer the middle-click in the "Back"-menu, so I couldn't test it.

I'm able to reproduce it with FF17, it's more a Google thing.
