To replicate:

1) browse on a mobile network connection (e.g. registering at 2G).

2) open 2 or more tabs to remote URIs.

3) in the active tab, enter a new web address and switch to another tab as it loads.

While the former tab loads, in the tab GUI the tab shifts position and empties. It is as if the loading page gets put into the wrong place or overwrites the wrong memory.

The problem seems to occur when the two tabs are still loading and a third is opened or entered, to choose a third web location: switching between the tabs will then lose the third location's window/tab/address. This happens in low-bandwidth conditions a lot but is a tricky bug to define.

The screenshots show the second tab address replaced by the first, but rather than the second also switching to the first, the second appears to disappear, replaced by an empty address line.
