Reporter: Your build is old. Please try a more recent build: http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/mozilla-win32-talkback.zip (as always, be sure to delete your old Mozilla directory before installing the new one) Dupe of bug 99645?
The problem is still there using the 2001103003 build. I think this bug hasn't correlations with bug 99645.
Reporter: Have you tried a fresh profile? You can manager/create profiles with "mozilla.exe -profilemanager". -> XP Apps

Reporter, are you still seeing this on more recent builds? Have you tried this with a new profile? Also, is multiDesk a free (or available in shareware) program so that we may test this? Thanks.
Mike: Though I don't use MultiDesk, you can get it here: http://www.siliconrealms.com/mdeskinfo.htm (shareware)

No response from reporter. ->WFM ?
I'm still trying to reproduce the problem in a way that can be precisely described. I see that introducing the tabbed browsing in Mozilla has really reduced the number of times this problem happen... but sometimes happens (right now about one time per release...). Using Mozilla 0.9.9 it happened only one time and now, using the 1.0RC1, I got any problem. Is it better to spend no time around this problem?
Sounds like we don't get rid of the window completely. We must be leaving the old browser window in memory somewhere. Normal severity.
Severity: trivial → normal
Worksforme Build ID: 2002042608 (0.9.9+) trunk Windows 98. Reporter, are you still seeing this problem?
just downloaded Multidesk to try this out (multidesk 3.90a and mozilla 1.0RC3 on win2k), and while I can't reproduce the exact problem described, Mozilla windows definitely behave very strangely in Multidesk. When switching to a different "desktop", Mozilla windows tend to stay where they are (i.e. they act like the "appear on all desktops" option is set, although it isn't. Don't know what to do with this - I'm not sure it's necessarily a bug in Mozilla, but Mozilla windows do seem to behave differently from most other Windows app windows in terms of Multidesk. I don't see how this could be "fixed" without working with the developers of Multidesk.
problem i saw seems to be bug 62310. can't reproduce the closed windows thing, reporter hasn't replied again for more than 30 days. resolving WFM. reporter (or anyone): if you can reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla, please reopen this bug. thanks.
