Details

In FF8.0.1, steps to repro:

1) open new firefox firefox window #1 and open multiple tabs in that window.
2) open new firefox window #2
3) in window#2, start typing a url to a site already in one of the open tabs in window#1.
4) select completed url from the awesome bar popdown, and see the correct tab in window#1 move to the foreground as expected. 
5) notice that empty window#2 is still present. I would have expected window#2 to be closed at same time as switching to window#1.

(not sure if this is the correct component, please reassign as appropriate.)

This also happens in FF9.0 and FF9.0.1.
