I would type the text of a link, and it would (invisibly to me) select another link with that text in some other tab that is not the current one. Even clicking on the window does not fix this. Pressing Ctrl+L then Tab sometimes does, but not always. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: Unfortunately not reliably reproducible, but with luck you might be able to reproduce it by: * opening a number of tabs with similar web pages in them (e.g. different threads from the same discussion forum) so that they are likely to have links with the same text * switch around the tabs using the mouse a bit * start typing the text of one of the links, see if it does it in the right tab Maybe I should mention that I have the Tab Browser Extension installed (http://piro.sakura.ne.jp/xul/_tabextensions.html.en). (However, please don't just assume that it must be a bug in that extension if the bug does not occur without it.)

It's a pretty significant bug, so someone else would have file a DUPE by now or confirmed it, if it was in the main code. Reopen if you can confirm in a nighly trunk build. http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/

Maybe this is the same as bug #269276? I get basically this behavior with latest trunk nightly, and I've never used tab browser extension. Extensions in effect are Mouse Gestures, AdBlock, Copy Plain Text, Plain Text Links, BugMeNot, Hide SearchBar.
