Once I used the Web Console, the tabs behavior is weird: * URL are loaded in the previous tab, not in the current one * middle-click to open a link in a new tab is not working (ctrl-clic or right-click -> open link in a new tab neither) * ... more strange things Step to reproduce: * start firefox * ctrl-shift-k (open the web console) * ctrl-shift-k (close the web console) * ctrl-t (open a new tab) * ctrl-l, type an url, <return> The URL is load in the previous tab.
tested with 4.0b3-candidates/build2/ with an empty profile. Same behavior.

Summary: tabs behavior is messed up in nightly builds if the Web Console is used → tabs behavior is messed up if the Web Console is used
very strange, I use the console all day long and have not noticed this, nor can I reproduce the problem.
I've asked to a couple of people. So far, I'm the only one who has been able to reproduce this bug. I don't understand.
I am on Windows 7 too and I couldnt reproduce this error.

I can reproduce this issue, every time. I believe we talked about this in yesterday's meeting, if I am not mistaken. Isn't this an issue with how the WebConsole closes and that it breaks the tabBrowser? Or was that something different?

Hmmm. we attach DOM nodes into the tab (the NotificationBox), then they are removed when you close the console. I don't think we do anything to alter the tabbrowser. Mihai: can you trace the code paths to make sure we never alter the tabbrowser. I have no idea how we could be.
David: I already have this issue in my TODO. Will look into it, hopefully during the weekend. As far as I know, yes, we do not alter the tabBrowser, but maybe there's something we are clueless about, that breaks the tabBrowser. ;)

Seems confirmed, so blocking+ for investigation.
blocking2.0: ? → betaN+
Should I dupe Bug 584628 to this bug? I was able to reproduce this on one Windows 7 machine but not on the machine I am using right now. I was able to reproduce this in PB mode - see the error console errors in the bug.
Reprioritizing bugs. You can filter the mail on the word TEABAGS.
Severity: blocker → major
Whiteboard: [kd4b6] → [kd4b7]
Paul (and others): can you still reproduce the bug in the latest nightly builds? I cannot reproduce this issue anymore. I presume there have been some fixes to the HUDService code, which now no longer cause problems in tabbrowser.
I have never been able to reproduce this myself.
Unless someone can still reproduce this, I would like to close this bug. It's a beta blocker and it's really important to know if this is still an issue for anyone.
