Thunderbird 31.0b3 and Thunderbird 24.6.0 on Windows 8.1 64 bit

With no main window open, clicking on a mail in a 'new mail' notification opens the main window twice.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Have Thunderbird open and an account periodically checked for mail.
2. Open address book.
3. Close main Thunderbird window.
4. Send mail to account from 1 from which Thunderbird periodically fetches mail.
5. Wait for 'new mail' notification.
6. Click on the new message in the pop-up.

Actual result:
Main window opens twice.

Expected result:
Main window opens once.

Patrick, can you reproduce?

I can't reprpoduce on Win7.  In fact on win7 I get no notifications unless the main window is open.  But don't take this as gospel - I don't use notifications on a regular basis.

Maybe this is a problem only on windows 8?
I'll check when I'm on Windows tonight.

I can confirm this happens for me on Windows 8.1.

is it a regression in version 24.0 and working in 17.0.x?

Also happens in 17.0.11esr.

I see this with Address Book opened.
But not if a message window is open (and not the addres book)
Severity: normal → S3

No. Seems you can no longer keep the address book open whilst the main TB program is not running. I am not able to so WFM.
