User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.2) Gecko/20021126 The QuickLaunch tool, whenever the last open Mozilla component is closed, shuts down and reloads. This is extremely inconvenient, because it means a wait of at least 5->10 seconds before you can use *any* Mozilla components again. The whole point of QuickLaunch is to keep components in memory instead of reloading them all the time, which is defeated by this bug. Both Mozilla 1.1 and 1.2 suffer from this bug. Of course, we could just rename the tool "VerySlowLaunch" ;-) Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Ensure you are using QuickLaunch mode. 2. Open a Mozilla browser window. 3. Ensure no other Mozilla components/windows are open. 4. Close the Mozilla browser window. Actual Results: The QuickLaunch icon goes away for a couple seconds, then comes back but is loading for a few seconds more. During this time, you cannot run any Mozilla component (all attempts to open mozilla from shortcut icons/etc are completely ignored). Even attempts to open Mozilla from the quick launch menu are ignored while it is still "loading" (when the "Exit Mozilla" is no longer grayed out, the "loading" is done and you can actually open a Mozilla component). Expected Results: Don't have the "QuickLaunch" ever close! It should simply stay resident, and thus I would be able to load another Mozilla window immediately. While there is no crash or functional impairment, and the "workaround" is to simply wait for it to come back, the annoyance/impatience factor is high enough to warrant, IMO, a "normal" priority.
