This is with release 0.9.9 on WinNT. I installed this release two days ago and have had more problems with it than with any release in the past year! This morning, I discovered that I am unable to enter a URL by hand; Mozilla flashes the "Loading" message for a split second and then reports Done but without loading anything. I'll still have the previous web-page, or (if I open a new Tab) a blank page. I don't remember if this was a problem yesterday or not. The only thing that *might* be different today was that I remember double-clicking the desktop icon before Windows (and the Mozilla Quicklaunch) had finished loading. Could that have messed-up the program? After submitting this, I'll try unloading/reloading Mozilla...
Another oddity: The URL shown in the text window is still the one I tried unsuccessfully to type. It's not changing to reflect the current page?! My Bookmarks still work fine, as do links on the pages (which is how I was able to get to Bugzilla and submit this).
I isolated the problem. Clicking on the Mozilla icon while Quicklaunch is still loading results in a corrupt browser window. The URL window ignores both manually-entered URLs and the currently viewed URL. Closing and re-opening the browser window fixes the problem. It looks like the Mozilla executable (only on Windows?) needs to check the status of Quicklaunch so that it correctly initializes.
bug 134185 may be a dup.
According to email@example.com in irc, this is a real problem, and there may be an older nsbeta1- bug related to this that describes a potential fix. I don't have time to find it now, but I know it's not an open bug in the Quicklaunch component, in case anybody wants to look. Confirming.

With build 2002-04-26-06 (1.0 branch) on WinNT, I'm still seeing strange behavior when I repeatedly double-click the Mozilla icon while Quicklaunch is still loading. I end up with some broken windows (nothing but a title-bar) as well as one "ok" window; I forgot to check if the "ok" window accepted manual URLs, though. Also, I don't see this bug listed as a dependency for the tracking bug 75599 so I'm (trying) to add it as a blocker.
Bill, Shouldn't the fix for bug 147223 solve this problem?
You are correct and, in fact, this is a dup of that bug. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 147223 ***
