Description

I started a download of the mozilla daily build and then accidently closed the 
navigator window.  So, I only have the "Saving File" dialog visible.

The problem is I can't find a way to get a new navigator window back.  Ctrl-N 
doesn't work.  Double clicking on the executable doesn't work.  There obviously 
isn't any pull down menu to select a particular application within mozilla 
either.

In theory you could just "reload" mozilla but this doesn't work either (I have 
reported the reload bug 50170).

I would agree this is certainly annoying.  Should be hold RTM to fix this?
Probably not.

Bill and Sairuh, isn't there another bug similar to this somewhere?
Assignee: don → law
yes, this also happens to me using 2000.09.26.08-branch comm bits on winNT
--agreed that it's an aggravation. this behaviour is similar to communicator
4.7x on NT, *except* that clicking the icon (in my case a shortcut on the
desktop) *does* launch the app (tho' shortcuts don't work, alas).

there was regression on the mac where keyboard shortcuts didn't work (eg, cmd+n
to bring up a browser window) after you closed the last window --but that's been
fixed, so prolly not related to this (tho' it sounds similar).

cannot find a bug on my list where this exists --blake/jrgm, does this sound
like a known bug?
