Firefox Tracking Flags

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

When switching to tabbed mode, Firefox opens 2 tabbed pages - neither of which
are the page that I had originally had on screen when I switched to tabbed mode.
 In my opinion, this should keep your "currently" browwsed to page as the first
open tabbed broswer screen, instead of taking you to 2 generic Firefox screens.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Browse to a page on the web
2. Right-click in teh grey area near the top of the screen, and select "Open in
3. My browsed page is GONE, and 2 firefox tabbed pages appear.  Annoying to have
to go back to my page after I was already there.

Actual Results:  
Described above.

Expected Results:  
Kept my original surfed-to page as teh first tabbed page.

It sounds like an extension may be at fault. I only have 5 choices when I right
click and none of them are "open in tabs".

Try recreating using firefox's safe mode and then a new profile. If this solves
the issue than it is likely an extension is at fault. 

In the future use one of the community suport support options first before
filing a bug http://www.mozilla.org/support/#community.
