Description

7 years ago
Build ID: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:7.0a1) Gecko/20110616 Firefox/7.0a1

STR:
1. Launch Firefox on a new profile
2. Have 2 browser windows open: in one of them have one normal tab (in a group) and one orphan tab (with no group)
3. Open the second window and in the location look for the orphan tab and select the "switch to tab" option.

Expected result:
In step 3, the orphan tab should be visible solely in the browser window

Actual result:
In step 3, the orphan tab is visible next to the normal tab (with the group)

The "orphan" tab is possible to be removed (as per bug 654721), but as long it's still there IMO this bug is valid.

You're right, it's a bug but we're already working on bug 654721, that will "solve" this one.
