Description

User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.8) Gecko/2009032609 Firefox/3.0.8 (.NET CLR 3.5.21022)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.0; en-GB; rv:1.9.0.8) Gecko/2009032609 Firefox/3.0.8 (.NET CLR 3.5.21022)

When you try to open a new window, the cursor shows that the page is loading, but no window appears.  If the only window is closed, Firefox will continue running (it appears in the task manager) but will not open another window.  The only way to make it do so is to end the process (firefox.exe) in task manager and start firefox again.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click File
2. Click New Window
