Video plays from deleted tab

I've had this happen several times, so I'm sure it's a bug. I've tried to duplicate it manually, but as yet have not been successful.

Some blog posting that comes up in Vienna has a link to a YouTube video. I click on it and watch the video. At the end of the video, YouTube shows me a countdown clock with an "up next" promotion. I close the tab to leave YouTube and go back to the blog. A few seconds later, I am treated to the sound track of the follow-on video, from the deleted tab, and the only way to get it to stop is to quit Vienna.

OK, I can duplicate it on demand.

The feed URL is http://feeds.feedburner.com/TheWarOnGuns

The article page is http://waronguns.blogspot.com/2018/08/d ... on+Guns%29

Click on the link "Dish of the day." Let the brief video play out to the end, until you see the "Up Next" spinner. Then click on the X in the tab to close it.

Now wait for a few seconds, and you will be treated to a phantom soundtrack of the next video, even though there is no tab associated with it.

I can verify this. Very annoying! Happens to me all the time on the CBS Sports feed.
