STR:
1. Open two tabs with different pages.
2. Cut (CMD+X) the URL from tab #1's address bar.
3. Switch to tab #2.
4. Switch back to tab #1.

RESULT:
Tab #1's address bar is still blank. In Chrome, Safari, Edge, and IE11 all restore tab #1's URL.

RELATED STR:
1. Cut (CMD+X) the URL from the address bar.
3. Switch to a different application.
4. Switch back to Firefox.

RESULT:
The address bar is still blank. Edge and IE11 restore the address bar's URL. Like Firefox, Chrome and Safari fail to restore the URL.
Is this a recent regression?
No, this is not a regression. It's a long time frustration that I finally wrote down the STR and reported. :)

Mass bug change to replace various 'parity' whiteboard flags with the new canonical keywords. (See bug 1443764 comment 13.)

For posterity, I confirmed with Natalie that this is the behavior we want. Also, it's still true that Chrome, Edge, and Safari all have this behavior.
