From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; N; PPC; en-US; m16) Gecko/20000620 BuildID: 2000062008 When I open a file from the Apple menu in Mozilla, it opens three instances of it. For most applications, it's not a problem, just the equivalent of launching BBEdit (say) three times, nothing happens (except for some flickering). The same goes for most documents. Stationary, on the other hand, opens three instances. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Launch SimpleText. Type some sample text in the document. 2. Save As a stationary file, in Hard Disk:System Folder:Apple Menu Items 3. From Mozilla, select this file from the Apple menu. Actual Results: Three instances of the stationary file are opened in SimpleText (as Untitled, Untitled 2, and Untitled 3). Expected Results: Only one instance of the file should be opened. This may or may not be related to bug 36618. This has happened to me for just about every build I can remember. May be a problem specific to me, however. I've seen it to open two instances rather than three, but I can't be more specific about how to reproduce it.
Confirmed on 8.6/build 2000061411. File must be in Apple Menu Items folder; it can not be a subfolder.

I was able to reproduce this on OS9 62108 build
Eli, I know you've got your hands full but could you look at this and help me find an owner. It isn't major but I have no idea who would be able to debug this issue.
umm...good catch! I humbly suggest sfraser (who worked on the code)/jrgm (qa/menus).

email@example.com, just in case the instructions were confusing. DOn't open it from Mozilla's File|Open. Create that text file, add it to your Hard Disk:System Folder:Apple Menu Items, then with mozilla open and active go to the apple menu and select this text file. I can repro with mozilla bits 071208 on OS 9
Um, misunderstood the steps to reproduce (duh!). Yes, with a simpletext file set as stationery, in the Apple Menu folder, selecting it from the Apple Menu from Mozilla will launch two instances of the document in Simple Text.
