Bug Description

Since version 0.23+15.10.20151013.1-0ubuntu1, the new tab view is now displaying top sites as a grid of previews.

There is a minor UX issue with the implementation, that was spotted during QA validation and didn’t block the landing, but should be fixed ASAP:

Open a new tab and focus the address bar. Right-click on any preview in the grid in the top sites section, active focus is transferred to the grid, and a highlight appears around the first item in the grid. This highlight should follow the item that was right-clicked, otherwise it’s confusing. This happens on desktop both in wide and narrow mode. I think it happens on touch too, when long-pressing on an item in the grid.
