.startup .mail and general .startup .browser rules not followed with RPM versions of mozilla
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030701 With mozilla 1.4 obtained from RPMs (for RH8) and installed on RedHat 9, the following preferences are not respected: user_pref("general.startup.browser", false); user_pref("general.startup.mail", true); mozilla always starts with a browser. The Mail window never appears (except if manually called, e.g., CTRL+2 or "Window" -> "Mail & Newsgroup") NB: This is reproducible with the official RedHat9 released mozilla 1.2.1. On the other hand, the *.tar.gz versions do respect the preferences and only start with a Mail window. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.launch mozilla selecting only Mail in the Appearance/Prefs 2. 3. Actual Results: A browser always appears. The Mail window never appears by itself. It must be generated (eg CTRL+2, etc). Expected Results: Launch only a Mail window and not a browser. Theme: Blue, but Modern/Classic do the same.

this will only happen when you already have Mozilla open. please make sure Mozilla is not running when you start it. % ps -C mozilla-bin
I disagree to the additional comment of Andrew Schulz. It occurs even if no mozilla is running (I checked with ps -fe |grep mozilla, and with ps -C mozilla-bin).
ahh.. now I understand, although I'm not sure the current problem would have existed with 1.2.1 the startup script (/usr/bin/mozilla) passes "-UILocale en-US" (or whatever other locale) as a commandline parameter (almost always). That triggers bug 58523. If you want the behavior you've described, you'll need to edit the script to remove that bit, or just do "mozilla -mail", which should work fine. marking dupe of "-P, -nosplash... switches unable to launch anything other than the browser (mail does not open on startup)" *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 58523 ***

Agreed. I removed the line: [ -f $MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME/chrome/$MOZLOCALE.jar ] && MOZARGS="-UILocale $MOZLOCALE" and it worked correctly (except maybe that the password for my POP account was not automatically requested). Sorry that I did not find the previous bug. Marc
