Summary0002695: "newly opened tabs are blank" not completely implemented
DescriptionWhen I choose the "newly opened tabs are blank" and "switch to newly opened tabs immediately" preferences, then hit control-T, what happens does not seem right. The newly opened tab says "about:blank" in the tab bar, but in the URL bar, there is a copy of the URl from the page that I just left. This is a nuisance when using the X11 clipboard, and anyway it doesn't seem like the behavior that would be expected.

This is fixed with the new toolbar-within-tabs UI which Vincent wrote. It will be released in 3.10
