From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.9) Gecko/20020311 BuildID: 2002031104 I can get Mozilla into a state where, after loading a new page in response to selection of a link or entry of a new URL, the browser immediately loads another recently-visited page in the active tab/window (not necessarily the same one as that which the first page-load happened in). Both pages are entered into the history, so pressing back undoes this. Once it's in this state, it always loads the same unwanted page rather than a random one each time. It *appears* that the unwanted page is always one that was loaded in response to a request from another program, but I'm not sure. Reproducible: Couldn't Reproduce (but I'll try, and will update this if I can) I previously encountered bug 59078, and solved that by removing ddeexec sub-keys from Mozilla's registry entries, as suggested. So all external requests to open URLs are being done using "Mozilla DDE" and not Windows DDE.
I've seen this happen under Linux too, now, so it clearly isn't Windows-specific.

Can you reproduce this in the nightly build ? Did you try a new profile ? Clearing the cache ?
no reply from reporter for 4 months+ anything new here ?
I've seen this happen once while using Mozilla 1.0. I still don't know how to reproduce it, but evidently it's less of a problem now.
Marking WORKSFORME because it hasn't been reproduced using a new build of mozilla. Ben Hutchings: if you still experience this problem using a new build of mozilla such as 1.2a, please re-open this bug. Thank you.
