From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.8) Gecko/20020204 BuildID: 2002020406 Reproduction: open up two or more tabs. type *anything* into the URL bar in the new tab (but don't hit enter). click on another tab (and note that you must click *twice* to switch to the other tab). then click back. URL bar once again contains the default "about:blank" instead of whatever was entered previous to the switch. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: See description Actual Results: two-fold: first, as is highlighted in bug #104778, the text in the URL bar is replaced by 'about:blank'. second, two clicks are required to switch to another tab Expected Results: I realize that the first isn't necessarily a bug, but the second should behave as: 'one click' needed to switch tabs, no matter what.. On a separate note, keep up the good work!
Confirming on Linux 2002020611. Changing summary. I don't know whether this really is a bug. The first click is to close the drop-down list of the URL bar, the second switches the tab. Let's hear an opinion from UI-specialists.

Correcting typo in summary..
Summary: Two clicks needed to go switch tabs. → Two clicks needed to switch tabs.
this bug is a dup of bug 66834.
It is fair to work this way because selecting a tab should always display the url that is viewed by that tab, not some hokey text you may have typed earlier.
