Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I go to a proposal, select the off-topic tab, then visit a different proposal and the off-topic tab is still selected.

I can imagine that this was a decision rather than a mistake, but it seems unintuitive to me.

Anyone else agree?

This is the [by-design] behaviour across all of the sites. When you select a tab, you are selecting a preference for that to be your default tab. I admit that it is not as intuitive on area51 as it is on all the other sites, but I feel it is still a reasonable assumption. Especially for users who are familiar with the other sites.
