See url testcase.

Steps to reproduce:
- Tap on the button

Expected result:
- A new tab opens with the url and that tab is focused

Actual result:
- A new tab is opened, but the about:blank url is shown there and that tab is not focused. Focus seems to be going to the first tab in the list.

It might be fixed with some of the latest changes to BrowserDOMWindow.openURI

This is fixed by the patch in bug 712761.  The underlying problem is that openURI does not return the contentWindow, so a new top-level window is opened which makes Fennec very confused.

Leaving this bug open and marking bug 712761 as a dependency, because the patch there has been backed out.
