If however, the user types this: mozilla -chrome file:///C|/foo.html the resulting pipe operation causes Mozilla to float windowlessly (henceforth "act like a Mozilla zombie"). Mozilla should terminate nicely, ideally with an error about a malformed URL. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:

can you check if it's dupe of bug 133700 ?
what does mozilla -chrome file:///C do? On linux, I get an error dialog (couldn't find C) and then it hangs. Having a pipe changes nothing.
On Windows this causes Mozilla to hang without any messages: mozilla -chrome file:///C if the pipe symbol is added, one gets a bonus generic message from the OS as well: "Intermediate file error during pipe" It's the hanging that's the problem; can't stop a user from making typos. - N.
Not a dup of bug 133700, but related. This one's about the | symbol, not about the more general problem. Added a dependancy. - N.
