When a browser is opened, minimized, and then another opened via application start(double clicking), the second broser window won't allow text to be typed into the location bar. This is a problem that appears when a mozilla browser is open, regardless whether any tabs are used or not. Browser: Mozilla 1.0 RC3 Steps to reproduce: 1. Open Mozilla, borwse to any page. 2. Minimize window. 3. Open new instance of browser via double-clicking on an icon (or start however else) 4. try to type in location bar
Looks like bug 140413 is a dupe of this, and is possibly related to bug 88689? This is all I could find in my (admittedly brief) search for duplicates.
There are a few bugs which have similar descriptions: location bar unselectable when new window is spawned: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=146853 Occasionally unable to get Focus set to URL bar and other text fields: http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=126843

Is this bug still valid? I haven't dealt with it in ages. I recall finding that the problem was that another instance of mozilla.exe (in Windows NT or 2000?) was running. I just killed off that instance and the bug went away. Maybe the issue is having Mozilla recognize that there are other instances of itself running, and deal with it appropriately.
