[Bug] Panel, Tabs and a lot of Start Pages

  • So, I wasn't able to find a place to report bugs, but it seems that people do it here, so here goes. I use the option that has the tabs on the left. I accidentally clicked and dragged the "Panel" menu(which is also on the left with Toggle Panel on, but the panel toggled off) into the tabs area while half asleep and about twenty "Start Page" tabs opened. I can replicate this even after restarting. I don't really think this is a big deal, but it was very weird.
    This is on Windows 7 64-bit.

    The place to report bugs is the Bug Report Wizard, but it's not a bad idea to report them here first to see if anyone can reproduce it.

    I cannot even figure out what you're doing. We should start by getting the terminology right, so that we're all on the same page.

    • The panel toolbar contains three or more icons and each icon has a context menu when you right-click on it
    • The Bookmarks icon opens the bookmarks panel, the Downloads icon opens the Downloads panel, and the Notes icon opens the Notes panel.

    With the panels closed, there's not a lot that you can drag and drop to the Tab Bar. Please explain again what you did, or make a screen shot.

  • I am simply using terminology based on what the settings menu calls things.
    I am guessing that the Panel Toolbar is what we are talking about, that's where bookmarks and downloads are.
    I clicked the little arrow used to expand the panel toolbar area and accidentally held down my mouse and let go in the tabs area.
    Hopefully that makes more sense. I threw in some screenshots, but I don't know if they are useful.
