After right clicking on an inactive tab and closing it, the other tabs act funny
and if you do it twice, your browser won't go to any pages except bookmarked ones.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a page
2. right click any link
3. click "open in new tab"
4. wait until it loads
5. using the mouse, go back to the first tab.
6. right click another link
7. click "open in new tab", wait for it to load
8. do not left click anywhere.... right click on the second tab (which is not
active), hit "C" on the keyboard (don't move the mouse until step 10)
9. right click again in the same spot.... you shouldn't have moved the mouse
yet... , hit "C" and BOTH the first window and the last close
10. type in an address in the location field... and hit enter
11. Click on a bookmark that you have somewhere.
Actual Results:  
immediately after step 7, you have 3 tabs

immediately after step 8, the middle tab closes, and the one you see now is
BLANK! but it should show whatever was in the 3rd tab. (error #1)

immediately after step 9, you have an empty window.  you hit "C" 2 times, but
all 3 windows closed (error #2)

immediately after step 10, i see the same thing as before i hit enter (a blank
page). I see no tabs open at all, and a blank page. (error #3)

immediately after step 11, you see a NEW window open up with your bookmark
loaded up.

Expected Results:  
after step 8, I expected to see the second tab to dissapear, and i would expect
to still see the same active tab (the last one i opened)

after step 9, I expect to see the same active tab (the last one i opened) still.

after step 10, i expect to see the google page loaded up.

after step 11, i expected the bookmark to load up in the same window in the
current (active) tab.

ocasionally, but not today when i was testing this, the "c" key won't work, but
mouse clicks always work.

i LOVE the tabs so i use them all the time.... every time this happens to me,
all my pages are closed and i get annoyed...

Reporter, you're using a pretty old build.  Please get a newer version of
Mozilla and see if the problem still exists.
