Browser can't be launched after launching mail by "-mail" option. (1) On Command prompt, execute "mozilla -mail". (2) Execute "mozilla". Nothing happens. WinNT Build: 2000061808
This bug is happened following situation. (1) on command prompt, enter 'mozilla.exe -mail'. It launch Mozilla Messenger window. (2) while Messenger window is opened, enter 'mozilla.exe'. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ (3) Moziila Browser is not launched. (add firstname.lastname@example.org to CC:)
This is invalid. When you use -mail parameter, you're already launching "mozilla.exe". To bring up the browser, you will need to choose the menu item from the Tasks menu in the mail window. You can't run two instances of "mozilla.exe"
Why invalid? I want to use Mozilla same as Communicator4.x. I created tow shortcut icon on my windows desktop. One is "mozilla.exe" for launching a browser, and another one is "mozilla.exe -mail" for launching a messenger. While using messenger, "mozilla.exe" shortcut seems be disable. In other case, when I iconize a messenger in a task bar, do I need to open(normalize window) a messenger for using browser? Do I need to open a messenger at a once, for use browser?
sorry, last one line was too much.
Mozilla for Linux can be launched by executing "./mozilla" on shell prompt after launching mailer.
I don't think this is a mail problem. You'd probably get the same issue if try to start the browser and composer (w/ -composer parameter).
Perhaps the default action when launching mozilla.exe with no parameters should be to open a new "Navigator" window, no matter what else is running.. This is the behavior that IE5 exhibits, etc, etc..
This seems to be a Win32-only bug. I think the expected behavior is to open the requested application specified on the cmd line, for example: -mail would open the messenger, etc. if no application is specified then it should default to new Navigator window. Revising summary to more accurately reflect behavior. Updating component. Confirmed on Win32 nightly 070608.
I doubt we get to this in beta3. adding 4xp parity keyword.
