Reproduce: - Go into Create New Profile - Go to page 2 - Press Change Folder - Now press Cancel in the Create New Profile window leaving the "Browse for Folder" dialog open. Expected: It should NOT be possible to press cancel if the "Browse for Folder" dialog is open. Important: If you have no Mozilla profiles pressing Cancel will leed to a CRASH!. Otherwise the Crash will first happen when you press Exit in the Select Profile dialog!
the folder picker should be modal. sounds like its not. This is not a profile manager problem I dont think. Reassigning... dougt, are you the right person to give these to or am I starting to piss you off? ;)

Doug, your comment makes no sense to me. _Ben_ is the profile front end person and he's asking for your help. To reiterate, are you the right person to help make the dialog modal? The crash happens in other similar circumstances and is probably docshell. If you close the window that spawned the dialog, you will crash the next time the dialog does anything. Anyway, Ben seems to want to make the problem go away by preventing it in the first place and that's probably the best course right now.

Me? In the past, I added a "parentWindow" attribute to nsFileSpecWithUIImpl to make file picker dialogs modal. Is the profile code using that interface (nsIFileSpecWithUI), or, is it using nsIFilePicker. The latter has a means of specifying the parent window, also (which I presumes makes it modal). If the code in question is using nsIFileSpecWithUI, then somebody should fix it. If not to use nsIFilePicker immediately, then to set the parentWindow property of the filespecwithui object. I'll go find the code and take care of this, I guess.
