Right clicking on tool bar and clicking "Open in tabs" when you have one site (and as such no tabs) visible resets original tab to Mozilla start page
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041110 Firefox/1.0 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041110 Firefox/1.0 When I first load Mozilla, I get directed to my chosen homepage. At the current time, there are no tabs visible. When I right-click on the tab browser bar and click "Open in tabs", a new tab opens. The problem is the tab containing the original site (i.e. the homepage or any site you're looking at in that tab) automatically gets reset to the "Firefox - Rediscover the webs" start page. This is extremely annoying as you then have to click Back to regain viewing of what you were looking at. When I have clicked "Open in tabs", the right-click option changes to "New tab", and there are no further problems. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Start Mozilla, and the homepage will load. 2.When the homepage has loaded, and there are no other tabs open, right click on the row where the tabs usually appear, and click "Open in tabs" 3. Actual Results: A new tab opens (there are now two). What is now the first tab (the original containing the homepage) has now changed to the "Firefox - Rediscover the web" start page, and is no longer what you were originally looking at. The new tab opens automatically to "Mozilla Firefox - Live Bookmarks" Expected Results: The software should have left the original tab showing the original page as chosen by the user, and not automatically reset to the "Firefox - Rediscover the web" start page. Running Firefox 1.0 on Windows XP Home Edition SP2 The browser does not crash.
You probably mean "Open in Tabs" option in Bookmarks Toolbar context menu. It *replaces* the current set of tabs. That is by design. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 216346 ***

Right, it appears you were confusing the tab bar with the bookmarks toolbar, which on a default install is above the tab bar. You can hide it by right clicking the File menu and unselecting "Bookmarks Toolbar", or move it by selecting "Customize" from that same menu.
