Description

This is the SeaMonkey version of bug 664672.

When closing a tab, we should disconnect it from its linked browser, reducing the chances of a leak. Conveniently when we restore a tab we already reconnect it to its browser, even though we never disconnected it...

The scope of this bug has changed somewhat, since we now restore the original tab element when we undo close the tab, so we now need to break the link when the tab is closed for real, either because undo close tab is disabled or because the undo stack has overflowed. Any test port has to take that into account of course; the boring way is to only check the disabled undo close tab case.
