Build ID: 20130701031115

Steps to reproduce:

Exit browser with tabs open.  Restart browser.  Look at tabs.

Actual results:

First tab listed is my home page, eventhough that was not a prior open tab.  Previous first tab is not shown.  Clicking on the (ficticious?) home page tab briefly shows that page and it is then replaced with the expected first tab from the prior session. [in my case, home page is set to yahoo news.  when I click on that first tab after restore, the tab is labeled as yahoo news and briefly shows a glimpse of that page before putting the correct tab from prior session]

Expected results:

Browser should not have loaded a home page tab but even if this is "expected" behaviour, it should have loaded all all prior session tabs in addition to that home page tab.
