I have noticed that when a file is downloaded, for example an .exe, it will run that launch that program for each browser window I have opened. If I have The main window with several tabs and another open to download a file, I will see two "install" windows or two ".zip" viewers appear when the download is complete. I think the software just launches it for each brower window but does not check to see if others are already open. Somewhat of an excess step and annoying at times...
Can you be more specific as to which windows are opening? How are the downloads being launched? Which version of firefox are you using?
I am using FireFox 1.0 on WinXP [I do use i686 Linux FireFox 1.0 but do not remeber if the error occurs there as well]. I do happen to have the OpenDownload Extention installed which puts an option to open the file extention to the OS assigned program. Any browser windows I have open with websites on them [with multiple tabs or not] will trigger that download to open. It opens one time per each window.
If this is a problem with functionality introduced by an extension, then contact the extension author about any problems. Extension bugs are not supposed to be reported on Bugzilla. Reopen if you can reproduce a problem without any extensions installed.
