Listed are both "Current Items" and "Past Items". For some reason, a new entry is generated in the "Current Items" list *each* time you start the Mozilla turbo launch e.g. after rebooting or by manually killing and restarting Mozilla. This confuses the sys tray options so even if you set "Always hide" on the icon, the next time you start up after closing Mozilla completely, the icon will show up and yet another entry will be added to the list. I've confirmed that this happens with 1.3a and 1.3b, can't speak for earlier versions. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Right click on start menu, choose properties->taskbar->customize. 2. Set "Hide on inactive" option for Mozilla tray icon. 3. Close Mozilla, exit quick launch, restart. 4. Watch Mozilla icon reappear. Actual Results: Mozilla icon displayed in systray. Expected Results: Mozilla icon shouldn't display in systray.
You surely have a problem with your WinXP :-) My tray icon is hidden following your steps. Using WinXP-Sp1 and a current CVS based trunk build.
this is yet another reason why we should remove support for abusing the notification area. you'll live.
Created attachment 114224 [details] Screenshot of "Customize..." dialog demonstrating problem. Here's a screenshot of the problem, in case there's any ambiguity in what I described..
Cannot reproduce here - icon stays hidden when I ask XP SP1
Could not rproduce me either.. Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212
This is a problem with Windows XP. In particular, when Moz crashes, it seems to get confused on Icons. I've seen similar things happen with the new mail Icon. The only real fix to this is make Mozilla not crash. :) Suggest "Invalid" since it's not a problem with mozilla.
Marking invalid. Please see comment #6
