Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Expected Results: mozilla should show the typed-in address all the time. often i'm surfing with many tabs and windows, and with the described behaviour it happens, that if loading of a page fails i cannot remember the address i typed in or the link i clicked on. i had many situations when i missed this feature very very much.

Sorry, my first explanation of the bug was not fully correct. Please forget it and consider this one instead: When middle-clicking on a link - and thus opening the link in a new tab - and then (left-)clicking on the new tab, the url is not shown in the adress bar. This is only noticeable if the connection needs some time to establish (the tab displays "Loading..."). When clicking on stop now, the address is still not shown in the adress bar. It would be great if you could change this behaviour ! Something similar and even more annoying happens when an address is typed in a unused tab. After pressing return, clicking on another tab and clicking on the new tab again, the address is not shown. After clicking on "Stop", the address still isn't there. This also happens only when the connection to the webserver seems not to be fully established by the time the "Stop"-click occurs. It would be very great if you could take care of this one !!! Or is it necessary for some reason, that the address is shown in the address bar only when the connection to the webserver is already fully established and the site itself is loading?
email@example.com: Are you still seeing this bug with recent builds? Tried to reproduce but couldn't. Either my PC/network connection are too fast, or this is fixed.
unable to reproduce with latest builds on winXP or FC1
