Good: When opening a set of tabs it opens one page in the current tab when
having 1 tab open and makes new tabs for the rest

Bad: When opening a set with 2 or more tabs open, it deletes extra tabs and
replaces them with the new sites

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create and bookmark a set of tabs and/or open a few blank ones
2.Select the new group or a bookmarked one from before

Actual Results:  
See that it replaces the content of older tabs with the new ones

Expected Results:  
It should of just put the sites on new tabs like it does in 1.0-1.4 final

1. I think there should be controls in options to change tab behavior.
2. It is major because Tabbed Browsing has been here from the start of the 1.x
range and in Netscape's 7.x.x range and it has been fine before the 1.5 nightys,
and I am also afraid that we might be unleashing a big confusing twist on tabbed
browsing on the Mozilla casual users and Netscape users
Also it will overwrite currently opened tabs and replace them with new pages and
will delete extra tabs
