Closed Bug 1473974 Opened Last year Closed Last year
Opening tab list with Ctrl+Tab breaks the tab list until browser restart
STR: - Be on macOS (haven't tried other OSes) - Open a bunch of tabs. Enough so that you need to scroll and the all tabs drop down button shows up. - Set "Ctrl+Tab cycles through tabs in recent used order" in your preferences. - Hit ctrl+tab until you're on "List all N tabs" and then release (selecting that option). After this not only does the tab list not show up, but it is permanently broken until the browser is restarted.
This is present in Beta as well, but not release. It's possible this is a dupe of an existing bug then? I'd be surprised if nobody noticed it (although maybe my usage pattern is rare).
Mozregression says it's due to https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/autoland/pushloghtml?fromchange=37c19e77f78dc0d5958daae526006f87a3765630&tochange=0d4eda5546ddd0317e305d42280c58fb8773a66d (which makes sense since that seems like a nontrivial change to that code). This also renders the "list all tabs" button completely broken, and that remains permanently broken after triggering it, so it seems kind of bad to me.
This issue is reproducible also on Windows.
I can confirm this. There are some other keyboard support issues by the looks of things too. Pressing down in the menu won't drop into the list of tabs.
