If we start with wizard say with page index to be 1 (i.e., 2nd page) and set the
next page index to be say 4 (5th page), on advance wizard navigates properly
from 2nd page to 5th page. On rewind, wizard goes from 5th page to 1st page
instead of going to second page.

Could someone please check to see if this could be related to or even the cause
of bug 124703?

Renominating for nsbeta1. ADT, this is the cause of the critical hang-like bug 
124703, "news account wizard dialog locks up if you press the Back button".

Thanks Jonas, how do you know that?

Oops, I might have been wrong. If we compare these two bugs, we'll see that this
bug is triggered by starting a <wizard/> on any page other than the first one
and hitting the back button, and that bug occurs when you open the account
wizard, which uses the <wizard/> tag and sometimes starts on the second page
[1], and hit back.

[1] This is why I think I might be wrong. I am pretty sure that Moz used to
display an introduction message the first time you opened the Account Manager,
but it doesn't do that for me anymore, not even on a new profile (I'm using
build 2002041512 from the 1.0.0 branch). If it skipped the welcome message on
subsequent opens of the Account Wizard, that would explain why it caused bug
124703 to happen, but since it doesn't do that anymore, I am no longer sure. On
the other hand, I can't reproduce bug 124703 anymore (I could once), so if my
memory isn't failing, and Account Manager did once have a welcome page, the
removal of the welcome page might have been what fixed 124703. I don't know. If
it turns out that I'm wrong, sorry for wasting your time.

This bug was filed with Activation as an example where after successful
activation (not the new activation), we always used to land in identity page in
the wizard as we set the start page to be that one. In such a case, hitting back
from the page after identity page, always took us to the page before identity as
opposed to identity page. Anyway, in the new activation world, we don't even
popup account wizard when we succefully activation as we create a complete mail
account instead of a partial one.

So, I don't think this bug warrants a nsbeta1 nomination. But something that we
may have to fix or come up with a alternative suggestions to avoid this in the

As I nominated this on an incorrect basis, removing my nomination and reverting
keyword to what it was before.
