when opening new tabs quickly, focus remains in form elements of previous tabs
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040207 Firefox/0.8 If a tab with a form element that automatically has the focus is opened followed by another tab, the text that should go into the url of the new tab goes into the focused form element of the previous tab. It seems to only happen when the browser is loaded for the first time, and not subsequent times. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. open a new firefox window 2. open a website that has a form element with focus on loading the page (google.com among others) 3. quickly open a new tab and try to type something Actual Results: Characters that should go into the address bar are placed into the form element from the previous tab. Sometimes a few characters go into the address bar first and then subsequent characters into the form element from the previous tab. Expected Results: Place all characters in the address bar of the new tab. I am currently using Firefox 0.8 on linux, but the problem also occurs on 0.9 on windows.
