User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:8.0a2) Gecko/20110905 Firefox/8.0a2
Build ID: 20110905042011

Steps to reproduce:

Steps to reproduce: Open http://www.tagesschau.de/, http://www.youtube.com/, http://www.eff-arr.de/. Split into two tab groups, one with tagesschau and one with youtube and eff-arr. Open tineye.com in a new tab in the tagesschau group, search for a picture. Close tineye tab.
This bug also exists for other opened websites, but not for all.



Actual results:

FF changed to second tab group


Expected results:

FF should still display the tagesschau.de tab group.

So you're basically saying that closing a Tab in a then non-empty Tab Group A switches focus to Tab Group B intermittently depending on the Content of the closed Tab?

Yes, exactly. It depends on the content of the closed tab and maybe on the content of the other opened tabs. I couldn't figure out which content causes the problem, but the scenario I described in the bug description reproduces the bug for me.

It is a problem with the addon All-in-One Gestures 0.22.1, the standard configuration for closing tabs seems to do some strange things. So no Panorama problem, sorry for bothering you.

Thanks for clarifying. You'd maybe want to contact the add-on author and bring this to the author's attention.
