(A fairly obscure nit, but FWIW) If you trigger the awesomebar switch-to-tab mechanism while in a blank tab, then click outside the autocomplete dropdown, then hover some other link, the over-link origin displays: moz-action:switchtab,someurl rather than the actual url of the current tab. This seems to only happen if you start the sequence while you're in an empty tab. STR: 1 - Open some tab with a mozilla URL, for example 2 - Open a new and blank tab 3 - Make the empty tab be the current tab 4 - In the urlbar type 'mozi', which should open the awesomebar dropdown and show your other tab as a possible match 5 - Arrow down to the matching 'mozi' tab, but don't click it or press enter 6 - Click some neutral spot outside the awesomebar dropdown to close it 7 - Note that the urlbar now shows something like Switch to tab: http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/central/ 8 - Hover any other link 9 - Note that the urlbar now shows something like moz-action:switchtab,http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/central/ (along with the link target) Actual result: - While hovering, the urlbar shows something like moz-action:switchtab,http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/central/ Expected result: - When hovering a link, it's supposed to be telling the user the contents of the current tab (New Tab or something like that) along with the link target - Or, if intentionally telling the user they were in the middle of switching tabs, then moz-action:switchtab could be replaced by something more comfort-inducing Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.0; WOW64; rv:2.0b8pre) Gecko/20101105 Firefox/4.0b8pre See also Bug 480350 and Bug 587908.
What I see is something like: http://grab.by/7fO1 And one thing that may be confusing is that that it persists even if you switch tabs, press ESC, or restart the application. It's not unsettling, though.
