1. Go to a table in PMA so you have Browse/Structure/SQL along the top
2. Click the SQL tab and run a query (i.e. update/insert).
When you do this the tabs along the top change to the default ones that display for the database, not the ones that display for individual tables. It still has the table name in the "breadcrumbs" at the very top.
