User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Netscape/7.1 (ax)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.5) Gecko/20031007

When using a wireless connection both Mozilla 1.5 and Netscape 7.1 will "hang"
if the connection is lost temporarily. It is still possible to close any open
Browser  windows, but links etc. will not be followed. If all browser windows
are closed and Mozilla is restarted from scratch, a message appears that the
previously used profile is still in use. This message also appears if Mozilla is
started from the memory-resident toolbar icon. The workaround is to kill the
Mozilla process using the task manager and restart. This solves all problems
until the next loss of connection.

Your build is too old to report bugs on.
Can you reproduce this with a nightly?
Looking at your steps, I would like to know if mozilla is running in the task
manager after you close all the windows, before you try to launch it again.

Also, please see if "Quick Launch" is on in your Prefs.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".

This bug has had no comments for a long time. Statistically, we have found that
bug reports that have not been confirmed by a second user after three months are
highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

While your input is very important to us, our resources are limited and so we
are asking for your help in focussing our efforts. If you can still reproduce
this problem in the latest version of the product (see below for how to obtain a
copy) or, for feature requests, if it's not present in the latest version and
you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
Thank you for your help in this matter.
