Problem is on Trunk Builds If you click on this link http://wiki.http//wiki.mozilla.org/Performance/Status_Meetings/2007-July-18 in Thunderbird it opens a new Tab in Firefox that is greyed out and not usable. You can`t also use this tab for other urls. On Firefox 126.96.36.199 it displays only the "Can`t find page" Net Error and the Tab is usable. Regression between 2007-06-14 and 2007-06-15 (thanks martijn) http://bonsai.mozilla.org/cvsquery.cgi?treeid=default&module=all&branch=HEAD&branchtype=match&dir=&file=&filetype=match&who=&whotype=match&sortby=Date&hours=2&date=explicit&mindate=2007-06-14+04&maxdate=2007-06-15+09&cvsroot=%2Fcvsroot So we think its a regression from Bug 371360
This might help diagnose the problem -- Using Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20070509 SeaMonkey/1.1.2 with WindowsXP. Preference set to open link from external application in a new window. After attempting and failing to open bad URL, I went to the address area and removed the "//wiki.http". On selecting Enter, I got the desired Web page. Thus, either the problem is limited to Firefox and is not in SeaMonkey, or else the problem is limited to configurations in which links from external applications open new tabs instead of new windows (or both).
Just a note, I just saw this with a page that took a long time to respond, when I hit stop before it loaded or timed out. > The issue is that for external loads we CreateAboutBlankContentViewer before > doing the load... which fires the unload event right then and there.

(In reply to comment #5) > Loaded from outside the app? Yes.
Then yeah, this patch should help.
Marking blocker to make sure we get this in.
Comment on attachment 273049 [details] [diff] [review] Fixed it seems really fragile to maintain this as state on the docshell instead of the document or something
Comment on attachment 273049 [details] [diff] [review] Fixed Yeah, true. I was going for minimally invasive here....
Comment on attachment 273049 [details] [diff] [review] Fixed Need this on branches too if bug 371360 lands there.
it'd also be nice if the header had a comment about the purpose of this variable
Checked one in.
