[Triage Comment]
Needed on beta since it fixes a regression caused by bug 709492 which is on beta

So this patch was actually backed out as part of the backout of bug 709492 (see comment 61 on that bug), and the modified re-landed version didn't need this patch. So it doesn't need to be uplifted anywhere.

Removing beta approval since this doesn't need to be uplifted.

This is only about the tabs opened in background that were not appearing or I should look at some other bad behavior also in order to verify it?
Yeah, this is only about tabs opened in background. STR would be something like:

1) Open some page
2) Long tap on a link, open new tab
3) Wait a while for the background tab to finish loading
4) Switch to the new tab

If the new tab shows up normally then that's good. You can also try without step 3, so switching tabs while it's still loading. That should work as well.
Verified on:
Nightly Fennec 13.0a1 (2012-03-04)
Device: HTC Desire Z
OS: Android 2.3.3

The new tab shows up normally.
