* Overview: If another Search window is opened by selecting one of the four menu items in the second section on the Search menu, the existing Search dialog is replaced by one that is blank and unusable, clobbering the earlier one. The user may still have been wanting to get back to it... * Steps to Reproduce: 1. Select the Search>Search the Internet menu item. 2. Do a quick search. 3. Go back to the Search menu and select any of the four items in the second section. * Actual results: The Search dialog used in step 2 will disappear in step 3, and be replaced by a Search dialog of the same size that does not render any of its contents beyond the tabs for the four kinds of searching, and is thus useless. (After closing this another will come up normally). * Expected Results: One of the following: A. A second, completely independent Search dialog will appear, and nothing will happen to the previous one. B. The previous Search dialog will be made visible and given focus; if a different type of search is chosen than previously, the tab will change but the state of the tab used in step 2 will be maintained until the dialog is closed. (Similar to what is seen if Tasks>Composer is selected twice). * Tested with: 2000-01-05-08-M13 nightly binary on Windows NT 4.0sp3.

Ummm, no. All I had to do was select Search|Search the internet once and then go back and try again for the fun to start. You don't even have to actually do an original search. To Repro: 1. Select Search| Search the Internet. 2. Select Search| Search Bookmarks/History. 3. Buh-bye. I've repro'd this on all three platforms with today's builds. Selecting Search the Internet again in step 2 yields strange results per platform. on linux, I quit silently. On WinNT I hung for a while until I got an OS out of memory dialog and then quit silently. On mac the first search dialog came to front. MacsBug trace as soon as my Mac reboots :-(
The crash you are seeing is a different problem that the original bug. Don, you might want to point this bug at either hyatt or waterson for starters.
Clearing FIXED resolution due to reopen.

Hmmm, I wonder if this is related to bug #23029 (Two Find on this page crashes Mozilla)? Bill, is this yet another XPToolkit problem?
VERIFIED fixed with 2000020108 build
