Window/Navigtor menu of browser window opens second browser window when a
browser window exists.
After 2nd window opened, Window/Navigtor menu becomes browser window switcher.
Window/Navigator menu of Mail&News does not open second browser window.

As far as I remember, Window/Navigator menu opened new browser window only when
no browser window is opened.
Is it a design change?

it works fine for me on Mac osx 10.2.8 using Mozilla 1.8a. i.e. it cycles thru
the existing windows.

It does _not_ cycle through the existing windows when there's only one window, it opens a new one, which it seems it shouldn't. Couldn't find dupes, confirming. See bug 4916 for an explanation of the intended behavior.

When are you suggesting this regressed?  Mozilla 1.0 had this behavior.
