Opening new tab from list "typed URLs" shows last viewed/closed tab

Simple as that:
If you close a tab and then open a new tab using the list of "typed URLs" (= clicking on the blue symbol), the browser shows for a short time (maybe 0,1 seconds) the last closed tab or the last tab shown... not always, but often.

This is security relevant I think, because often online banking sites want me to close the tabs "completely" for security purposes. But somehow Avant "stores" that pages? I didn't see that before Ultimate 2016 Build 7.

To be clear since your screenshot is only of the Address Bar, the entire page is showing in the browsing window, not just the URL in the Address Bar?

Yes, the entire page/old tab flashes for a short moment in the browsing window, I added a screen shot of the address bar only to explain what I meant with "typed URL list" & the "blue icon".

Apart from that, if you don't get the other tab flashing, you nearly always can see a black page flashing. In older versions you always saw a blank/grey page before the FF engine began to load the desired page. Now you see that black page or the mentioned "old tab" flashing...

Update 1:
Unchecking "Open new windows in a new tab instead" in the firefox options solves this issue also for the moment, so it seems, that this bug is somehow connected to the other bug with "embedded links":

Update 2:
It still happens if you close a tab and then open a new tab from the autofill-menu!
In the screenshot I had closed the tab hood.de and wanted to autofill my login in Facebook, the newly opened tab showed the hood page first:
