clicking on any of the Task bar menus do not work in any window besides browser
If I click on any of the pop menus at the botton of the chrome, nothing happens. These buttons include "Channels", "Tools", "Business", "Free Time", "Shopping". However, the "Go To Window" works. If I do the same thing in a navigator windows, it works. Should these be disabled in the MailNews front end?
making beta1. This is annoying and should be fixed.

Phil - it doesn't work for me in today's build (commercial). I'll see if I can pinpoint. Here is what I do: 1) Browser window open 2) Mail window open 3) In Mail window, I chose Free Time | Movies 4) In browser window, page for movies is not loaded
and it doesn't work when the browser window is not open either. Using win32 build 2000-02-28-09 I have to reopen this.

Oh, I see. I misinterpreted "nothing happens" to mean "menu doesn't pop up" when the right interpretation is "menu pops up, but selecting a menu item does nothing". I do see that behavior too. Paul, can you look at this?

The problem here is that a file called taskbarOverlay.xul can only work from the browser window. It needs to function like the other global overlays and be written to work in any window. Instead of calling: oncommand="window.content.location.href='http://home.netscape.com/taskbar/6_0b1/ chan1.html'" it should call something like: oncommand="openTopWin('http://home.netscape.com/taskbar/6_0b1/chan1.html')" this way when the taskbar is not located in the browser window it will open the frontmost browser window and display the URL there. This issue is cross platform and fails in every main window except the browser. Changing platform to All, and sending to mcafee in the hope that he is given permission to check this in for beta1. Please send back to me if you are unable to get this done for beta1.

Sending to mcafee since he seems to have created the taskbarOverlay.xul file.

This is worse from the Composer window. If I choose any of the items from this task bar area in the Composer window, I'll crash with a "Pure Virtual Function Call" (on Win32). cc: sujay since this is in the composer window as well.
