"Open in Tabs" feature has unfortunate behaviour if multiple tabs are already open
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 If one opens a certain amount of tabs up in ones browser, then clicks "Open in tabs" in any bookmark folder, the new tabs will overwrite the old ones. This would be fine (you can just hit back on the tabs to get back to the previous page) if the tabs that were NOT used by these new pages did not close without warning. This is the real kicker. Users can lose their open pages without warning. If one has had an active browser session, it's a right pain in the ass tracking down ones pages again. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open some tabs up 2. Select "Open in tabs" in any bookmark folder Actual Results: Current tabs overwritten with new pages. Tabs unused by these new pages are closed without warning, so one could potentially lose data. Expected Results: I would expect a warning that my action would overwrite current tabs, closing those tabs that are not used by new pages (I am unsure of how this should be worded). Perhaps it should provide an option to open the new tabset in a new browser window?

This bug is CRITICAL! - users loose their data. Bug exists very long time (from v0.9 as I remember), but nobody bothers about that :(
