New Tab Causes other tabs to disappear visually for small number of tabs


(Firefox Graveyard :: Panorama, defect, P1)

(Whiteboard: tracked first-run)

Fx 3.6.4 on Ubuntu 9.10.

I had two windows open and installed TabCandy. After restart in a window with two tabs open, I did Cnt-T to open a new tab.

A third tab would be created, I can see three tabs at the top of the browser chrome, and I could see all three the TabCandyscape view.

One new tab, other tabs were gone. So I did Cnt-W to close the active tab, and I got back my two lost tabs... So visually the tabs were gone, but not actually.

So I did it again Cntl-T (same behavior) and clicked the "Spaces" icon. The TabCandyscape had 1 area with my two original tabs and no 3rd empty tab. There is a Untitled tab in the lower left (which is always there).

Opening a 2nd tab with Cntr-T again loses my two tabs and creates a series of (Untitled) tab headers once per Cntr-T. "Scrolling" Previous tab with Cnt-PgUp will get me back to the existing tabs.

Further testing... I guess this is the intended behavior. There is a "New tabs" group that is slurping up my ... wait for it ... new tabs.

Expected behavior: The traditional browser tabs shouldn't disappear until I manually group them in the TabCandy window. Existing tabs are in their own isolated groups. New tabs would follow this behavior, until I grouped them manually. The New tabs group is confusing, as I didn't create it and it doesn't really mean anything.
