Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030525
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.4b) Gecko/20030525

If all windows are minimized, when opening a new window the home page will not
be loaded.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
(0. Make sure you have Preferences set to load home page in new windows. Close
all windows open in Mozilla.)
1. Open a new Navigator window.
2. Minimize this window.
3. Open a new Navigator window.
Actual Results:  
The home page selected in Preferences is not loaded in the window; the window
remains blank.

Expected Results:  
The home page selected in Preferences should be loaded in the window.

Please note that the minimized window MUST be a Navigator window. In other
words, if you have only a Chatzilla window minimized, opening a new Navigator
window WILL load the home page.

I'm using the latest nightly for Mozilla 1.4b (see User Agent). This is the
first time I've noticed this bug. It did NOT exist (to my knowledge, anyway) in
the 1.4b branch.

Yes, this is Mac OS X specific. Something to do with windows being in the
Finder's dock.

Actually... I can confirm this bug (sora) with winXP 2003052508. If I minimize
all navigator windows, but leave mozilla mail open and press ctrl+N in mozilla
mail, a new navgator window opens with a blank page. If I do ctrl+N in
navigator, a new window with my homepage opens.

This bug no longer appears in the latest trunk (at least with the Mach-O build).
It may have been resolved in a previous nightly, but I haven't checked it up
until now.
