If you launch Netscape and click on Netscape -> About Netscape the window that
launches has the set start page instead of the About info.

Reproducibility: Everytime

Steps to reproduce:
1.Open Netscape (Browser, composer, etc. - doesn't matter)
2.Click on Netscape -> About Netscape

Actual Results:
The window that opens shows the start page instead of the about information.

Expected Results:
I would expect that the about information would be displayed. Help -> About
Netscape does work though.

I tried reproducing this on the 20010913 build for OSX but it worked fine.

Summary: Netscape -> About Brings up home page instead of About Netscape window → OS X - Netscape -> About Brings up home page instead of About Netscape window

Reporter, using Fizzilla build of course there isn't a Netscape menu, but rather a Mozilla menu.

That notwithstanding, selecting Mozilla/About Mozilla actually does nothing using Fizzilla/
2001092021. Selecting Help/About Mozilla opens a new Navigator window showing the proper 
About content.

Mozilla/About Mozilla works properly using Fizzilla/2001091313 (0.9.4).

Reporter, can you reproduce your precise reported behavior using the most recent _Fizzilla_ 
build? If not, this will have to go to Bugscape.

Are you not infact describing a bug?
Mozilla->About Mozilla does nothing

until you go under help->about mozilla
then mozilla->about mozilla displays the help

Would this not still be a bug that mozilla has to work on?

Actually this bug does quite a few things, some I can't get to reproduce yet.  I
have seen it open a new composer window while I was in composer, a new start
page as I stated above, the netscape help window and I've also seen it do
nothing at all.

There is already a bug for {appname}>About. if this is just about that then this
bug should be duped.

TucsonTester2, have a look at bug 83187. It's about implementing Mozilla/About Mozilla 
on Mac OS X. It's marked Resolved/Fixed, but if it isn't in fact working you should reopen 

Marking this bug a duplicate of that one.

about was broken for a day or two last week when i landed a menu change and
biffed only the 'app' menu (where about lives). it should work fine with a
current build. if not, please reopen this bug (it's not a dupe as marked, that
was the wrong thing to do).
This works on both the trunk 2001-10-02-21 build and the 2001-10-03 branch builds.
