STR: * with the sidebar open select an item in the list to load the page in a tab * switch tabs to another tab Actually Results - the active/selected state of the sidebar remains when viewing another tab that isn't displaying the article in the sidebar Expected Results - as you switch tabs away from the selected item the selection is cleared and vice versa
Removing "selected" from the bug summary as in the sidebar code "selected" is used for the keyboard selection and "active" is used for the item currently shown in the selected tab.
Summary: selected/active state on reading list sidebar persists after switching tabs → active state on reading list sidebar persists after switching tabs

Made a small change so that the active item highlight is also removed when switching to a non http(s) tab (eg. about:newtab).
