I've tried using the right click>Lock tab functionality but it doesn't appear to do what I thought it would.

Allow me to explain..

I have phoenix set up so that when clicking a "group" of bookmarks on the bookmark toolbar will close all existing tabs and load the new ones. What I'd LIKE to set "lock tab" do is preserve said locked tab so that even if I have phoenix set to close all existing tabs groups before loading a new one, the locked tab will stay put or "locked".

Anyone else with me on this? There are plenty of times when I find something I want to stay "put" while still surfing other site. I don't want to disable "close groups when opening new ones" because then it gets way crowded on my tab bar...

Anyway, it just seems to me this is the way it should work..

I believe Locking it just prevents it from auto-reloading. Talk to Piro.
