My original page is no longer tabbed, and when opening a new tab, I can't go back to the original page without closing all of the tabs.


In the past, if I didn't have all of the tabs opened, or just opened a new window, the page would still be in a tab if I opened up new tabs. Now, if I hit the "+", I get a tab. I can't get back to the original page without closing all of the tabs.

Example: I open ebay.com in a window. I hit "+" and go to cnn.com. I want to go back to what I was viewing on ebay, and I can't see it, unless I close the cnn window.
