Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. login to gmail 2. open a chat with someone 3. 'pop-out' the chat window into a separate window 4. close the chat window 5. try to initiate a chat with that person again Actual Results: the chat window does not appear the second time round Expected Results: the chat window is visible and usable as normal each time you reopen a chat with someone
Does this work in Firefox (or any other Gecko browser) or in Safari, OmniWeb, or Opera? I suspect it doesn't and this is a bug in Gmail. cl
i just tested: - firefox 188.8.131.52, it worked fine. - opera 9.22, same issue occurred. - safari 3, gmail does not offer chat in safari 3 (might do in safari 2, not sure) it seems to be related to the fact that the chat is popped out into a separate window. I tried these two cases: 1. initiate a chat with someone, the chat spawns within gmail window. pop out the chat into a separate window. close the chat. re-initiate with the same person. and nothing happens (bug) 2. initiate a chat with someone, the chat spawns within gmail window. do NOT pop out the chat into a separate window. close the chat. re-initiate with the same person. chat spawns within gmail window again. no problems. maybe gmail doesnt receive the window close event? could be a gmail bug. i have sent this bug to them too.
Is this related to/dupe of bug 369265?
it definitely seems this would be caused by the same issue, however the effect is different. sorry for the duplication! i'm new to this and i searched open bugs by mistake...
Yep, this was the onbeforeunload issue, so it will be fixed in the next release.
