Bug Description

Using Granite

It appears that when tabs are closed, some signal isn't being sent back to Midori. The tabs aren't actually being closed, the tab is just hidden.

If I close a few tabs, close Midori and re-open it, all the tabs I closed will re-appear. This can lead to Midori starting up with 100's of tabs.

What's more annoying is closing a tab with video or audio, I can still hear the content continuing to play in the background.

Granite doesn't always emit tab-removed, so depending on how you close it, Midori doesn't take notice that you did.

It is emitted when clicking the close button or pressing Ctrl+W. Do I miss a way to close a tab?
I added a print to granite-demo.
Are you sure, you're returning TRUE from the connected handler? Otherwise, the tab won't be removed from the notebook.

Closing with close buttons works.
If Midori calls remove_tab() the signal is never emitted.

This is tab-removed in Midori:

view = tab.get_page()
/* internal Midori signal that the tab was removed */
return true

Should be fixed now if I'm not mistaken.

No this bug isn't fixed. If i close a tab the sound continues playing in the background.
Another annoying bug is that HTML5 videos on youtube only play the sound but not the video itself.

PS : I'm using the latest midori version of elementary luna beta 1.

This version has not yet been made available to Luna. That's something I need to work on with Christian.

Just FYI, the fixed version is in Luna beta builds.

I'm still affected by this bug. I'm using Midori 0.4.8 from elementary OS PPA.

This bug is present in ElementaryOS Luna, and it's so annoying.

I like midori's ability to restore previously open tabs, but yesterday I watched a few videos and they will haunt me forever. They have been restored in every browser session I started since then. And if I close their tabs without pausing the video first, they won't shut up, and I get to listen to 6 40-minute long videos of talks at the same time.

It would be hilarious if I wasn't trying to get stuff done.

This browser is amazing and lightweight and super easy to use, but I'll have to use firefox until this is fixed.
