This is because the web activity handler always creates a new tab and when the browser first starts it already has one tab open. We could tell it to use the first tab to view the URL if the current URL of that tab is null.

A blank tab is still created on Leo 1.1 commercial RIL, but the Unagi 1.2 mozilla RIL only spawns one tab which contains the Firefox Help page.
