From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.1a) Gecko/20020617 BuildID: 2002061707 I have the 'Load links in the background' preference turned on. When I load a tabgroup, I expect it to obey this pref; load the tabs of the group in the background. Instead, the first tab in the group is focused. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a tabgroup 2. Set Tabbed Browsing pref 'Load links in the background' to on (checked) 3. Open the tabgroup Actual Results: Tabs in the group are appended to existing tabs, and the first tab of the group is switched to. Expected Results: Tabs in the group are appended to existing tabs, and the current tab is still focused.
I can reproduce this with Build 2002062208, Win XP and couldn´t find a duplicate, so marking NEW. This bug is a consequence of the behaviour to preserve the already open tabs and load a bookmark group in new tabs. I believe the "Load links in the background" pref should be honored whenever links in new tabs are opened. So a more general bug than this may make sense.

jag: do we want to fix this, or is this going to be WONTFIXed?
I agree that this should be fixed. Caillon, do you want to take this bug?
I'd better take this since I have the patch.
Comment on attachment 95910 [details] [diff] [review] The fix there's a pref or prefs global variable that you could reuse :-) sr=jag if you use that.

This is broken again. Re-opening. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8a4) Gecko/20040924 Prog.
This bug was fixed two years ago. No doubt, if it is broken, the reasons behind it being so are now radically different than they were before. I'm going to mark this FIXED again. Please create a new case and refer back to this one. But one so old should stay closed...
