Root objects: root nsNodeInfoManager root XPCVariant At step #7, you can grab the tab of the 2nd window and merge it with the 1st window and closing the 3rd window, same result. Idem with the 3rd window.

browser.xul was in the cc log for some time, but then disappeared. Did you run CC several times?
Yes, I ran CC several times. In addition, 'Run CC Analysis' in about:ccdump runs Firefox CC three times to clean up garbage.
What is "tearing" a tab?
Tab tearing allows you to pull any tab out of your Firefox window into a completely new window or pull any tab into another window.
Did someone try to reproduce it?
Sorry, I've forgotten to look at this. We marked it P3 because this seems like an uncommon operation.
This doesn't reproduce for me any more.
Loic, can you still reproduce?
(In reply to Nicholas Nethercote [:njn] from comment #8) > Loic, can you still reproduce? No. I guess you can close it.
Thanks for looking.
