1. have at least one pinned tab and one non-pinned tab
2. activate the pinned tab
3. enter tabview
4. click on the group to leave tabview
5. the non-pinned tab is the active tab, not the pinned tab

12:26 <@dietrich> johanc, ttaubert: figured it out - the group is stacked.
12:27 <@dietrich> so it doesn't feel like i'm clicking on a tab in a group, just opening the group.
12:27 <@dietrich> but panorama detects my clicking on that top tab in the group, so activates that tab
12:28 <@dietrich> not really a bug, maybe. but still weird. definitely didn't match my expectations for a stacked group.

Summary: last-active tab is not remembered if it's pinned → stacked groups should open in previous state, not treat click as if selecting the topmost tab in stack
Depends on: 600665
Panorama has been removed from Firefox 45, currently in Beta and scheduled for release on March 7th. As such, I'm closing all existing Panorama bugs.

If you are still using Panorama, you will see a deprecation message in Firefox 44, and when 45 is released your tab group data will be migrated to bookmarks, with a folder for each group. There are also a few addons offering similar functionality.

See https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/tab-groups-removal for more info.

We're removing Panorama because it has extremely low usage (about 0.01% of users), and has a large number of bugs and usability issues. The cost of fixing all those issues is far too high to justify, and so we'll instead be focusing our time and energy on improving other parts of Firefox.
