Description

STR:
1. Make two groups, each with two tabs. 
2. Go into one of the groups and select the second tab.
3. Restart your browser (with sessionrestore on).
4. Note that you return to the group you left off in, and the second tab is still selected.
5. Hit the "next group" key combo.
6. Note that you're now in the other group, with the first tab selected.
7. Hit the "next group" key again.

Expected: 
You should be in the first group again, with the second tab still selected. 

Actual: 
You're in the first group, but its first tab is selected.

We don't save the GroupItem._activeTabRef between sessions, which is fine, but we should make sure to set it for the group that's active when Panorama first starts up.

Bug 600665 does extensive work in this area, so any patch for this bug should go on top of that patch.
Depends on: 600665

I hit this daily. Seemingly minor, but we need to fix papercuts like this for Panorama to hit the big-time in tab navigation, so blocking+.
