STR:
1. With TalkBack running, open Nightly.
2. Open at least 2 tabs.
3. Hit the Tabs button again so the Tabs panel opens.
4. Explore the screen.

Expected: As the web content is now non-interactable, it should be hidden, and only the tabs panel should be visible. The only thing you can do in the web content is tap anywhere to close the tabs panel, but the Back button can do that, too, or just double-tapping the tab you were on before.
Actual: Web content is explorable, but you cannot swipe to it if you first touch something inside the tabs panel. To avoid confusion, the web content should not be explorable right now.
That sounds incredibly annoying. Is this a new issue recently introduced?

Not too recently, no. At least I remember seeing it for quite some time, but somehow always forgot to file a bug, but today was annoyed by it, so asked on Twitter whether sighted folks can actually interact with the page when the tabs panel is open. I believe this may have worked once when the tabs panel was still the old layout, you know with the Close buttons at the far right of the screen on tablets etc. But not sure.
