User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

If you double click the small (approx. 4 pixel) bar separating the web page and tabs a new tab will open.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open multiple tabs.
2. Double click the small bar between the web page and the tabs.
3. Watch a new tab open...
Actual Results:  
A new tab opened.

Expected Results:  
Nothing.

Occurs in all themes, only change I made to this Firefox 3 install is a few changes in About:Config concerning pipelining.

I'm not sure this is necessarily a bad thing.  It allows me to open a new tab through double-clicking even when the tab strip has been filled.

I never meant to say it was bad, just something they should know in case they didn't want it.

Able to open a new tab by clicking on the same bar separating the web page and tabs bar.
This is still the tabbar. It's not a different toolbar. The element in the background of the tabs is called tabstrip and it handles click events whereever you click.

Dao, can we wontfix that?
should be fixed by bug 347930
