Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008040514 Firefox/3.0b5
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9b5) Gecko/2008040514 Firefox/3.0b5

When two windows are open, and ctrl+T is pressed (but not when file>new tab is clicked) when the first window is focused, the tab opens in the second window. If the second window is focused, the tab still opens in the second window.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open firefox
2. Create a new window
3. Press ctrl+T in the original window
Actual Results:  
New tab opens in the new window

Expected Results:  
new tab should open in the focused (original) window

I'm using ubuntu's package, from the 8.04 repos

I just tried to reproduce it again and I could not do it. When I did have the problem, and I clicked on the 'go' button in the URL field, the ui on the other window was changing instead of the focused window.
I'm pretty sure this would have been noticed by others, and the reporter is saying WORKSFORME. If it was a problem then I expect it has been fixed in the last year.
