New browser windows generated by Manage Bookmarks too small
Build ID: 1999090808 Platform: RH Linux 6, Windows NT To reproduce: - Launch apprunner - Select Bookmarks | Manage Bookmarks - Double-click on a bookmark to open that Web page Result: A new window is generated correctly to open the Web page, but the window is the same size and in the same position as the Manage Bookmarks window. Expected result: A new window is generated which is both (a) the correct default size for a new browser window, and (b) is visually offset from (ie not in the exact same position as) the Manage Bookmarks window.
FWIW, the problem is even more pronounced when generating a new browser window from the History window. Should I open another bug for that problem, or just append it to this bug report?
Who handles bookmarks?
I don't think there is a spec for this, but your steps on 4.x would cause the URL to load in the top nav window. Iff there weren't any open nav windows, then it would open a new window with the sticky pref size and location, with no regard for where the bookmarks window was. This just sounds like the sticky prefs are including non-nav windows. reassigning to don for triage.
I know why the window is so small so I'll fix it( and history). If bookmarks should be using the topmost browser window file another bug and assign it to slamm
Bookmarks - reassigning to claudius

Resolution: --- → FIXED
windows generated from a Bookmarks double-click now appear at default size. whether they should be off set is a different question. This is Mac and Linux b/c bug 11986 is blocking verification on Windows.
Whiteboard: 19991014 - verification still blocked by bug 11986
at last, we have verification on windows. VERIFIED fixed with 1999102008 build.
