the newtab page changes the undo behavior of newly created tabs.


1. open any page
2. create a new tab
3. press undo


the url of the initially loaded page should immediately fill the urlbar.


the urlbar is populated with about:newtab


pressing undo a second time correctly populates the urlbar.

Interesting that you actually use this, never was an intentional feature :)
