Moving Tab to New Window (Ctrl+Alt+T) restarts flash apps and videos
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/3.1b2 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-US; rv:1.9.1b2) Gecko/20081201 Firefox/3.1b2 When I move a tab to a new window, the content of that window should behave as if nothing happened. Flash videos should continue on as before. A way to do this would be to decouple the page layout/rendering from the actual display of the tab or window or whatever. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open a web page with a flash video with more than one tab open. 2. Start the video playing 3. Right click on the opened page and select "Move to New Window" or press Ctrl+Alt+T. Actual Results: See that the moved tab stops the video because flash thinks it's a newly loaded page. Expected Results: I would expect the flash video to continue playing as if nothing happened. (we aren't really supposed to be making a new/duplicate page) Display in a tab/window should be not be referenced to the actual window it's in and instead be movable from window to window.

Version: unspecified → 3.1 Branch
Ctrl+Alt+T is an extension provided shortcut, as is "Move to New Window". Assuming that that extension uses the same back-end code as "Open in a New Window"...
