User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2pre) Gecko/20070111 SeaMonkey/1.1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.2pre) Gecko/20070111 SeaMonkey/1.1

I used seamonkey, and experienced this problem. 
I use quick launch (seamonkey's quick launs, not windows). I double click in the tray to open browser. Then I double click again, and new browser is not opened. 
This is not such a problem in most cases but I have at least two cases when this is a big problem:
1) I open browser (using double click in the tray-quick launch), then start downloading a big file, then close browser, but I still leave open the download window. Then if I want to open new browser to browse, I can't. Nothing works: double click in seamonkey quick launch, double click on html document, double click on desktop icon...nothing helps, and I can't open new browser window, so i need to wait until download completes, and then I can open browser.

2) If I open browser using seamonkey's quick launch, then when I click on link in my email client (seamonkey is default browser), nothing happens.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click on seamonkey in seamonkey's quick launch
2. repeat step 1...nothing happens

Actual Results:  
I have only one browser window. 

Expected Results:  
Two browser windows

I tried this on several PC's and I can reproduce it. Old version of seamonkey works fine. Also, if I don't use seamonkey's quicklaunch, it works fine.
