User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040708 Firefox/0.9.0+ Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040708 Firefox/0.9.0+ When a link is opened in a new background tab, or when the find toolbar opens, the content in the browser window shifts down the distance of the new toolbar. Since most users focus their gaze somewhere towards the middle of the content area--not at the very top--it would make more sense to have the new toolbar (in effect) cover up the top bit of the content area (actually: scrolling the window the height of the toolbar when the toolbar opens). Exception: if the content area is showing the very top of the document, just shift everything down (like the current behavior). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Scroll somewhere in the middle of a page. 2. Open a new tab in the background or initiate the find toolbar. Actual Results: The content shifts down the window as the toolbar opens, disturbing the continuity of reading. Expected Results: The content should have remained in a fixed location on the screen, allowing the user's gaze to remain fixed in one place.
