Sometimes Help can be minimized and resized without freezing once but has always frozen the second time in a row. Note: was also a problem in Windows ME. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Enter about: or about:plugins into the address line or access either from the Help dropdown menu. 2. Open Help Contents from the Help menu. 3. Minimize Help Contents. 4. If this does not crash the system, resizing and minimizing the window again will probably crash the system. Actual Results: System is frozen but with mouse cursor still reacting. Mozilla can be shut down using Alt-Ctrl-Del, but there is a noticeable delay between the pressing of Alt-Ctrl-Del and the End Task menu appearing. Expected Results: Mozilla should have minimized the window.
WFM, this is not a Help bug. If it still crashes in recent nightlies, reopen and include a Talkback report ID number.

Bug 184890 hangs when help window opened and minimized twice seems to be the more general bug, so this could be marked as a dupe of that.
