Details

1) Open two tabs with web content
2) Click the url bar to open the awesomescreen
3) Open the tabs tray
4) Select the other open tab

Expected: The selected tab's web content is shown
Actual: The awesomescreen remains open
The correct behavior should probably be to leave the about:home screen when we open the tabs tray.
The behavior in comment 1 seems like the quickest and cleanest solution.

Alternatively, users may want to edit their current tab from the awesomescreen with the tabs tray open, however, selecting content from the awesomescreen (including the toolbar) closes the tabs tray, so that interaction paradigm is more or less pointless at the present.

Ian, what do you think?

 I can reproduce this bug in today's nightly build using a Galaxy 10'1 Tab and Android 3.1
This will also be fixed by bug 918007. We'll disable all toolbar elements while editing.

I closed as WONTFIX just to make sure that no one would work on this before bug 918007 is fixed. But maybe adding a dependency is a better way to handle this.
