Steps to reproduce:

Move multiple tabs to a new window:

  • select one tab with Left Mouse
  • select another with Shift - Left Mouse
  • right click one of the tabs for the tab menu
  • select Move Tabs, then Move to New Window

Go to the new window, interact with the current page in the current tabs, but not the tabs themselves. Use ctrl-W to close tab.

Actual results:

All tabs in the new window (and the new window itself) were closed.

Expected results:

One tab should have closed.

On repeat I see that all tabs still have focus after the move. I propose that they should not.
