1. open about:config in a tab via some means (eg viewabout add-on)
2. click a preference
3. switch back to message folder and single click a message
4. ctrl+pgdn or click about:config tab switch tabs
5. hit enter

expected: preference has focus
actual: about:config does not have focus. a message from other tab is opened.

this doesn't happen in firefox. preference has focus

I can still produce this using current trunk. perhaps asuth the tab-master has advice.

(FTR, I did not try safe mode)
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
I don't think we are doing anything to try and force focus into the new tab in tabmail proper.  (The mail tab types do a lot of custom focus tracking amongst themselves, however.)

It looks like we just set the selectedIndex on the tabBox and hope it takes care of stuff for us.  Perhaps it is taking care of things for us for browser frames, but because about:config is presumably XUL, nothing happens for free?

Alternatively, are you sure we don't screw up for content pages too, Wayne?
