User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:17.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/17.0
Build ID: 20121128204232

Steps to reproduce:

Tap-hold (long press) on a link, chose "Open link in new tab" and immediately started scrolling the current active tab


Actual results:

The current tab scrolls properly for a second or so and then when the new background tab suddenly loads, the current active tab jumps back to the spot where it was when I first opened the link (thus losing all my scrolling)


Expected results:

It should have just opened the background tab and not affected the current tab.
Tried to reproduce this on mozilla-central/aurora/beta across the Note II, Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus and was unable to reproduce (used Techmeme, Neowin, Arstechnica). Do you have some URL's to try this out with?

This sounds a lot like bug 753052, which I was never able to reproduce.

It happens with reddit.com a lot. Happened on Nexus S and Nexus 7. (And to be sure we're doing the same thing. can you describe in your words exactly what you're doing? thanks!)

Do you still see this on Nightly or Aurora?

Still an issue on Acer Iconia Tab A500 (Android 3.2.1) at nfl.com mobile version. This is intermittent but I have seen the issue happen.
