Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. open two different webpages in two tabs 2. click on a link in the first tab and immediately click on the second tab Actual Results: new link opens in second tab Expected Results: new link opens in first tab I have no themes installed and as only extension the "Tabbrowser Preferences 0.6.7" by Bradley Chapman. I'm running firefox on a pentium3 450 MHz PC.
Please re-test with newer version of Firefox and without TBP.
Now tested it with firefox 1.0 and without TBP. I cannot reproduce the exact same bug (maybe fixed or page loads too fast to be able to select another tab). However when I (short, single) click on a link, I do sometimes get a different mouse cursor, which seems to indicate that the link is selected for dropping somewhere. When I click on a second tab immediately afterwards, it sometimes opens in the second tab and sometimes in both the current and second. Also I noticed that this drag-and-drop cursor appears when you click a link, while moving the mouse. To me it seems that this behaviour should only be selected when you keep the mouse button pressed.
