Security help window not a stand alone instance


(SeaMonkey :: MailNews: Message Display, defect)

Windows 2000
Not set


(Not tracked)

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.0rc1)
BuildID:    2002041711 (1.0 branch)

Mail & Newsgroups -> Compose -> Security -> Help opens a help window that isn't
a fully independent instance (stand alone) as help windows are in any other
places I have tried, thus:

- the help window isn't independently minimisable (if you do minimise it, as you
can with other help windows, it and the message security window disappear and
you have a situation where you can have the security window but you are unable
to dispell it with the 'ok' button until you again find the help window and
dispel that)

- you can't use the message security window whilst the help window is open

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Mail & Newsgroups -> Compose -> Security -> Help
2. click on the message security window

Actual Results:  focus won't move to the message security window until you close
the help window

Expected Results:  focus should move to the message security window without
needing to close the security window

Severity: normal → minor
Target Milestone: --- → mozilla1.0
only assignees may set tm. pelase use the keyword field for nominations (if bugzilla lets you, otherwise, ask someone else to nominate for you).
Keywords: mozilla1.0
Target Milestone: mozilla1.0 → ---
Current path to this help window:
  Compose window:  View | Message Security Info | Help

I was able to reproduce the problem in 1.3 Final, but in 1.4RC1, the help window 
is standalond -- you can close the info window and the compose window while the 
help window is open.

Marking WorksForMe.  Reporter, please confirm by marking this bug Verified.
