Load a non-cached page in a tab (I've been using the 1st tab after browser load) 2. Open a new tab; load about:config 3. Leave the filter textbox in-focus 4. Press Ctrl+W to close the tab Actual Results: Application crash Expected Results: Closed the about:config tab This happened on an existing and a new, default profile; not extension dependent.
