There are multiple windows open with multiple tabs in them. stumbleupon toolbar is present. When stumbleupon toolbar is unchecked in "view->toolbars" option, stumbleupon toolbar in only the current window disappears. other windows still show stumbleupon toolbar, even though the "view->toolbars" options show that it is unchecked.


Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Oen multiple windows.
2.StumbleUpon toolbar is installed and is visible.
3.click on "view->toolbars" to uncheck stumbleupon toolbar
4.stumbleupon toolbar disappears only on the present window.
5.Other windows still show stumbleupon toolbar. However, "view->toolbars" shows that stumbleupon toolbar is unchecked.
Actual Results:  
There are multiple windows open with multiple tabs in them. stumbleupon toolbar is present. When stumbleupon toolbar is unchecked in "view->toolbars" option, stumbleupon toolbar in only the current window disappears. other windows still show stumbleupon toolbar, even though the "view->toolbars" options show that it is unchecked.

Expected Results:  
stumbleupon toolbar should disappear from all the windows.

if clicked again on the already unchecked "view->toolbars->stumbleupon toolbar", in other window, stumbleupon toolbar finally disappears :)

This seems to be a case for all toolbar settings.  For example, I just re-arranged my toolbar buttons with two windows open.  Having made the changes in window A, I then closed window A, and Window B was still showing the old layout.

I don't have permission to change the summary, but if I did, I would change it to the general case "Toolbar changes with multiple windows only affect current window".  Can someone please either update the summary, or if you would rather keep this as a specific stumbleupon bug then please log this issue as a new bug.
This bug was reported using Firefox 3.0 or older, which is no longer supported. The bug has also not been changed in over 500 days and is still in UNCO.

The issue I report in comment 1 is still valid.

To reproduce:

* Open Firefox with clean profile
* Open a second Firefox window
* In window 2, customise the toolbar in some way (add/remove/move buttons, or change which toolbars are visible)
* Close window 2

Expected result:
* Window 1 reflects the changes you have made

Actual result:
* Window 1 is unchanged.

In addition, if I now close window 1 and restart Firefox, the changes you made will now show up.  This behaviour is probably correct, but is inconsistent with the fact that window 1 didn't change.

As I said, I don't know if this is a generalisation of the original bug, so either expand the bug summary or log a new bug, as appropriate.  I don't have permission to update resolution, status or summary, so can do nothing more useful than adding this comment.

No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.12 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.

Did you not read comment 3, which was tested on 3.6.10?  I don't know why you are requesting a repeat on 3.6.12, which seems to have just had a few security issues fixed.

However, I have nonetheless wasted another 5 minutes of my life repeating the experiment and - lo and behold - in 3.6.12 behaviour is still as described in comment 3.
