The second tab is not shown as active. The behaviour is not affected, but when
this tab is selected, no tab is drawn as selected. This only happens for the
second tab I open and it only occures sporadicaly. There's no pattern how to
repdroduce this, it sometimes just happens. I'm using the modern theme and a
self-compiled CVS build of 20020929, but this already occured in 1.1beta. 1.0
was not affected, IIRC.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a fresh Mozilla window
2. Open a new tab

Actual Results:  
The new tab is not drawn as selected.

Expected Results:  
The new tab should have be drawn as selected.

You say this only happens for the second tab, but your screenshot shows six
tabs. Which is correct?

I selected the second tab, and it doesn't appear selected. (as you can see) The
other tabs work fine, and even removing or adding other tabs doesn't affect this
single tab; everytime I selected it, it appears unselected, until I close it.

I don't believe I've ever seen this behavior. Christian, do you continue to have
this problem? Have you identified any way to reproduce it?

> Christian, do you continue to have this problem?

I've been using Mozilla 1.2.1 for quite a while (actually since it was released)
and I did *not* experience this any longer. I suggest this bug should be marked
as WORKSFORME or FIXED - it was probably some kind of nasty side effect of a bit
of code that was changed in the meantime.

> Have you identified any way to reproduce it?

No, actually not. During the time it was still occuring with the other versions,
it was really strange - it sometimes appeared but it was not reproduceable. (I
tried some things (special mouse movements, pressing different keys before
opening a new tab, looking for processes in the background) but it only occured
when I did not expect it)

Okay, resolving WFM. Thanks for the update, Christian!
