hi

the new firefox (Firefox/2.0.0.8) instance gets totally non-functional if you have opened a file dialog box in previous instance. but if you close the dialog box then the new instance starts functioning.
just like you trying to make a mail attachment in one instance and keep the dialog box in open state and suddenly open a new firefox instance to do some otherthing. so what we found is the new instance gets totally inactive, neighter are search engines displaying nor the address bar is functional.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.open a mail site, compose a mail and make an attachment and keep the dialog box in open state.
2.now open a new firfox instance and you will see it won't work.
3.
