User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1) AppleWebKit/535.1 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/13.0.782.107 Safari/535.1

Steps to reproduce:

Don't Remember, I was just casually surfing with 5-7 different websites in tabs. 


Actual results:

All the existing open tabs address got changed in address bar, to the last open tab.
Lets say, You are Browsing 3 different websites in 3 different tabs
1. Yahoo, 2. Google 3. Youtube. 

In my case all 3 tabs address bar will display http://www.youtub.com. Got it means It is showing the last tab address to all tabs.


Expected results:

Wondering ???

Also the "back" and "forward" buttons did not work.

I just experienced this same problem shortly after an automatic update to 40.0.2 on scientific linux 6.6

clicking into other tabs, the address bar displayed whatever it last did, be it an address
or just some junk I typed.  The security indicator portion would update though.

If I went into another tab and hit esc, the "last address" would switch to the address for that tab.

restarting restored normal behavior
