Clicking "Open in Tabs" in a bookmarks folder's context menu causes the first bookmark be loaded in the first tab, the second bookmark in the second tab and so on, creating new tabs as needed.
The user can revert the tabs one by one back by switching to the respective tab and clicking "Back".
There are extensions to make the behaviour of "Open in Tabs" configureable but the default should probably be to open a new tab for every bookmark. The correlation between bookmark number and tab number is quite confusing.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a bookmark folder with multiple bookmarks
2. Open at least 2 tabs, load pages in them
3. Right-click the bookmark folder, click "Open in Tabs"
4. Select one of the first tabs and click "Back"
Actual Results:  
See details.

Expected Results:  
See details.

I get the same results, except my second tab was not loaded over.

I have Firefox 3 beta 5
