User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:51.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/51.0 Build ID: 20170125094131 Steps to reproduce: Step 1: Open a tab. Navigate to any webpage, e.g., cnn.com Step 2: Open another tab. Navigate to a different webpage, e.g., facebook.com Step 3: Return to first tab. Hit "enter" in address bar. Actual results: Firefox loads the URL that was entered in the second tab (in this example, Facebook), rather than the URL in the address bar of the first tab. Expected results: Firefox should load the URL already listed in the address bar of the first tab (in the example, CNN).
On reviewing the report-writing guidelines I realize my use of the word "navigate" is imprecise. By "navigate", I mean: type the given URL into the address bar and press Enter.
Have you run http://kb.mozillazine.org/Standard_diagnostic_-_Firefox ? I had a similiar bug caused by an add-on --> Bug 1248120
gpuleo, is it reproducible: 1) in safe mode: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode 2) with a fresh profile: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles
Component: Untriaged → Location Bar
I can reliably reproduce the bug in safe mode. I was initially able to reproduce the bug on a fresh profile (outside of safe mode), but unable to reproduce it after trying safe mode on a fresh profile, and after switching back to non-safe mode, could not reproduce the bug reliably on the fresh profile.
I'm having same bug and can also reproduce in Safe Mode.

Navigate to a different webpage, e.g., facebook.com > Step 3: Return to first tab. Hit "enter" in address bar. it's missing a step here, how did you select the address bar? Just moving to a different tab doesn't focus it.

It would be nice to have a way to reproduce this easily, as it is sounds like something really intermittent, and I've never hit it.
did you use ctrl+enter to visit the first page, by chance?
I did, yes. Also happens after Shift+Enter and Ctrl+Shift+Enter for net and org.

Too late for 52 now. Marco, have you had a chance to look at this?
