Recently I opened two tabs, then opened the bookmark expecting to have 5 more tabs added. Instead, the two tabs I had open were replaced with two of the bookmarked ones, so that I had to manually reopen the original two pages. I realize this is normal behavior with single page bookmarks, but replacing multiple tabs seems like the wrong behavior to me. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Bookmark a group of tabs 2.Open any number of tabs 3.Click on the bookmark Actual Results: The open tabs were replaced by the bookmarked ones. Expected Results: Opened new tabs for the bookmark.
I understand David but if his solution is used this will lead to confusion. What to do if there is one page opened and call a 5-tabs bookmark? Put it as the first tab and add the 5 other tabs ? For consistency, I suggest treating multiple-tabs bookmarks (MTB) like any other bookmark. To offer a consistent solution to the problem described by David, I suggest following Bug 155863 rules: Click a MTB : the MTB replace window's content, overidding existing page or existing tabs from the first one. If the MTB contains less tabs than the current page, the remaining tabs on the page are unchanged, not deleted. Opt-Click a MTB : add the MTB after the page contents, which if it's not empty becomes the first tab, or after the existing tabs. Cmd-Click a MTB : open a new window with all the MTB tabs.

Yes this behaviour is also driving me nuts as it does not match Mozilla's "de-facto" standard for tab-group bookmarks. > I understand David but if his solution is used this will lead to confusion. > What to do if there is one page opened and call a 5-tabs bookmark? > Put it as the first tab and add the 5 other tabs ? Yes! This is exactly what Mozilla does now. Let me show you why doing this makes sense. My daily routine every morning when I get into work is to fire up Mozilla (which is my primary browser until this is fixed in Chimera). My home page is slashdot.org. So I start up Mozilla and as slashdot.org is loading I go to my bookmarks menu and click on my "Netcraft Uptimes" tab-group bookmark group. This leaves slashdot as my first tab and then opens 6 more tabs for each server uptime page. Note that slashdot is left as the displayed tab because I have the load new tabs in the background preference checked. Then I click on my "News Sites" tab-group bookmark. This then loads the tabs of the 8 news sites I read after my netcraft tabs. Slashdot is still my currently selected tab. By now, Slashdot is fully loaded and I can go ahead reading it. If there are any articles I want to read I then open those in new tabs which are added after my news tabs and load in the background, leaving me still on slashdot. Once I'm done with slashdot I close the tab and then quickly look through the netcraft tabs closing them as I go. Now on to the news site tabs opening links as new tabs as I go. I just keep moving down the line until I've read everything I want. Now you may be asking, why not just have one tab-group bookmark that has slashdot, netcraft tabs, and news tabs in it. Because I don't want to. I read slashdot at least 4 or 5 times a day which is why I made it my home page. If I'm opening a new browser window (instead of a tab), 90% of the time is because I want to read slashdot. Since slashdot is already loaded as the home page, including it in a tab-group bookmark would cause it to be needlessly loaded a second time as part of the bookmarks loading. Now I only want to check netcraft once a day but the other news sites a couple times a day which is why they are separate bookmarks. So combining those together would cause the extra loading to not only waste bandwidth but my time as well because of the extra delay in loading and the fact that I would have to keep closing them. I have been doing this routine every day for several months since whenever tab group bookmarks were added to Mozilla?
