This behaviour makes sense to me, for how should the program know for what purpose you opened a blank tab?
(In reply to comment #1) > This behaviour makes sense to me, for how should the program know for what > purpose you opened a blank tab? > It wouldn't /know/, but I, for one, have no good use for staying at a blank tab :) I suppose there are times when one wouldn't want this functionality, but for me at least, I can't imagine the bad out-numbering the good. Maybe I just shouldn't have turned on openintab, but a couple of times I've opened a new tab and then used the search box - I just think it should use the blank tab instead of creating another one and leaving the blank tab blank.
See bug 320989 and bug 302352. Duping to the latter one. I think the former will cover the issue with the search bar. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 302352 ***
