Description

6 years ago
To reproduce:

* Inspect an element
* Close the inspector (with the "X")
* Go to a new tab (or an existing tab)
* Return to the original tab

Now the inspector will be open again, as though it was never closed.  Going to a new page stops this behavior.
You're claiming this is in 9 branch, is that accurate? (Beta?)

It was fixed in bug 690361 which is targeted at fx 10. Since this is preffed off for 9, I don't think we'll be able to land it on branch. :(

I just tried this in Nightly and Aurora and this appears to have been fixed sometime in the last two months. Setting target for Firefox 10, since Aurora seems good.
