Hello,
I note, with the tabs, a small "funny" phenomenon but also
destabilizing for the user.
When I hide tabs and that then I show them again, they do not reappear
any more in the initial order. And even the order of reappearance seems
random!!
One can see it
here(http://test03.christophe-charron.org/public/xul/2006_11_25/marrant_onglets_francais.xul),
for the French version or there
(http://test03.christophe-charron.org/public/xul/2006_11_25/funny_english_tabs.xul)for
the English version.
Is this a bad manipulation? Is this a bug? Solutions?

Tests made with WXP SP2 and FF 2.0

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,
Christophe Charron

It was a bad maipulation.
Just use "collapsed" instead of "hidden" and it all goes perfect

That won't work; if you focus the tabs with the keyboard then you can
still cycle through collapsed tabs.

I have observed a similar problem with tabs but as yet I don't know what
the cause is.

It might be the xbl insertion bug
