From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.0+) Gecko/20020605 BuildID: 2002060501 (Debian) If the download link is opened in a new tab (i.e. through MMB click), the blank tab left over after download will not close through Ctrl+W (though 'File'>'Close Tab' will work). A problem because some download pages will open download in new window/tab automatically. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to a download page i.e. http://www.mozilla.org/releases/index.html 2.Open a download link in new window through either RMB click menu or using MMB click (Linux only?) 3.New blank tab is opened. Save As window appears. When this dissapears, the blank tab left over will not close via Ctrl+W Actual Results: As per problem Expected Results: Ctrl+W should work as per usual
I confirm this bug under MacOS 8.6. To reproduce simply open a new tab with the contextual menu then try to close it with cmd+w. Won't work.
WFM with trunk 2002073022, linux. reporter: can you reproduce this bug with a recent build of mozilla (for example, 1.1beta)? if so, please comment again with details. if not, please resolve this bug as WORKSFORME. thanks.
Confirmed using FizzillaCFM/2002080508. I think reporter meant to open the link in a new *tab* in his step 2. Setting All/All.
I confirm the problem still exists in version 2002071709 (Debian). With regard to Greg's comment, yes there is a similar problem when opening a new tab through contextual menu, however I only became aware of it after Benjamin pointed it out. It must also be noted that I _could not_ reproduce it in 2002053012 (Win2k) - but I _could_ reproduce the problem with the left-over download windows. In 2002071709 (Debian) I was able to reproduce the problem through both methods.
