From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; WinNT4.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011023 BuildID: 2001103003 Pressing Ctrl+N does not open new window, it just seems to do nothing. Under 'tasks'-menu a blank entry appears. about:mozilla has the same effect 2001102309 does not do this, however, i had to UNINSTALL mozilla (control panel, add/remove programs), instead of just installing a new version over the old one, to remove this behaviour. perhaps that's a pointer? this has happened twice to me now, on two seperate days. don't know if it's related or not, but i couldn't press buttons in bugzilla. (could press, nothing happened) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. ctrl-n, does not work Actual Results: blank entry under tasks Expected Results: new window of course
WFM 2001103103 on Win2k. Mrten: When you install new Mozilla builds, you should always delete the old Mozilla directory first (or use "Add/Remove Programs"). If Mozilla happens to work even when you simply install over the old version, that's merely a pleasant coincidence :). Marking INVALID. If this behavior still occurs even when you uninstall the old Mozilla before installing the new one, then please reopen this bug.

tried removing 2001102309 before reinstalling 2001103003, seeing the same problem. i'll try 2001103103 before reopening. NT4 problem? :)
Mrten: If you still have trouble with 20011031 (or, 20011101 by this point), you may also wish to try a fresh profile. You can manage/create profiles with "mozilla.exe -profilemanager".
WorksForMe 2001103103, indeed. i tried a new profile, didn't help. i've fixed problems before by migrating to another profile, had to edit all my settings (& saved passwords!) by hand back then... :) some weird regression perhaps? can't imagine i was the only one experiencing this... well, whatever. thanx, now i have a working mozilla again :)
