"about:blank" left in address line after opening new tab


Sometimes when opening a new tab, the text “about:blank” is left lying around in the address line. Then when I want to type in an address, I must first remove this text.

Normally, this text quickly disappears and is replaced with the placeholder text “Enter a URL or search term”

This is an intermittent problem though and I can’t discern any pattern for why this text is or is not left in the field.
