On several occasions Mozilla will open 20 or 30 browser windows all on its own - I use to think it was something I was doing, but this last time everything was fine - one window for mail and one window on my home page www.sdmpo.org. I got up to take a paper to the secretary and when I returned I had 20 new browser windows open all identical. The windows were cascaded for 3 widows then they were all on top of each other. As I start to close the multiple windows Mozilla will crash. I suspect it might be caused somehow by the MS Wireless InteliMouse Explorer, but I have not narrowed it down to that. My other software is not reacting this way. Running a Dell 420 Workstation with dual 1 gig processors and 1 gig memory with dual Compaq monitors.
do you use Word Perfect by any chance? and did you by any chance start a print job before you walked away from your desk?
wrt WordPerfect printing, see bug 87788, fixed 2002-03-25. Reporter, if you believe that is the issue you were seeing, you can mark this bug a duplicate of that one. Please always include in bug reports the buildId of your Mozilla version (on the window title bar), consider using <http://www.mozilla.org/quality/help/bugzilla-helper.html> to report bugs. Thanks
Response from reporter: Yes I do have Word Perfect and yest it was running - but I do not remember if I sent a print job. I will watch for it. If so, to fix I need to download the latest version? bob
There was a bug where printing in Word Perfect while having mozilla open would cause mozilla to open many windows. This bug has been addressed. If this is the bug, you can either download a nightly(http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/latest/) or wait for the 1.0 release. Robert, please tell us if your problem is caused when printing in Word Perfect.
This is a dupe of bug 87788. Please reopen if you see this with a new build.. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 87788 ***

i tried printing in Word Perfect as suggested and I did replicate this spontaneous opening of windows - so I guess this is not a new bug.
