Branch build 2002-06-04: WinMe Overview: When a Mail dialog is open, such as the Save As dialog, switch to the Browser and change to a different website and nothing happens. Steps to reproduce 1. Open Browser 2. Open Mail 3. Select a message 4. Select File|Save As so the Save As dialog is open but don't do anything else in this dialog 5. Switch to the Browser 6. Enter another site in the URL text field and press Enter Actual Results: Nothing happens and the Netscape throbber also does not respond Expected Results: The throbber should respond and the next website should appear or make the mail dialogs modal so the user doesn't get into this confused state. Additional Information: - linux: ok since I can switch to the browser and the URL responds when I enter a new website. - mac X: ok since the secondary dialog is modal and prevents switching to another window such as the browser.
Marking nsbeta1 because this can leave the user in a confused state and think that the browser is not working.

As described in the bug I just duped, this issue does not appear to be limited to the Save As dialog or the Mail component. For example, if you have two browser windows open and select Print in one, you will not be able to navigate via the URL bar in the other. I think there is an over-arching problem with modal dialogs, and perhaps the summary of this bug should be updated to reflect that. Or, this might be a duplicate of such a bug (which I could not find).
Could this be a dupe of bug 74331?

See bug 74331 comment 62.
Ostgote, I think the two bugs are related but I'm not sure it's a dupe -- bug 74331 is about "networking" and I don't know whether the UI response qualifies. But that bug might be filed under the wrong component...

Darin marked 74331 as Fixed by the patch for bug 326273 (thread manager). I haven't done any testing for 74331, but this bug still manifests with Seamonkey 1.5a-0307.
