Sorry, I am blundering. A bit tired I think. My bug does fit the description here. I misread the report because of some typos and unexpected period symbols.
Your description needs to be clarified more for me to understand what the expected behavior is, but as far as I understand it. my experience doesn’t fit your description.
In a hypothetical situation, where there are 7 open tabs (which I label 1 through 7 just to make it easy identifying them here on the forum), and I have tab 4 opened.
From the displayed webpage, I open a link in a new tab. What should happen?
Continuing this same hypothetical situation. I relabel my tabs since I now have 8 tabs open.
Now I activate the last tab. I close the browser. I reopen the browser. This step seems to matter, but I am not sure yet.
I want to close some tabs. The first 4 I want to keep open, tab 5-8 I want to close.
I go to tab view, and see tab 6, 7 and 8. I press × on tab 8.
Expected result: Tab 8 closes, tab 5, 6 and 7 are viewed in the tab view, so I can continuing closing tabs.
Actual result: Tab 8 closes, tab 1, 2, 3 are in view, and I need to scroll back to 5, 6, 7 to continue closing tabs.
Go back to the previous situation with 8 open tabs. Same thing, I open the last tab, close browser, reopen.
I open the hamburger menu and press × to close the tab.
Expected result: Go to tab 7, or go to tab 4 (last active tab).
Actual result: Tab 1 is open.
This is only reproducible if you don’t swipe back and forth in tab view. As soon as you scroll a little bit, the result = expected result
