Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.1.8) Gecko/20100202 Firefox/3.5.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; en-US; rv:1.9.1.8) Gecko/20100202 Firefox/3.5.8

If Firefox is not presently running and I click on a hyperlink in Adium X, the Facebook Notifications toolbar widget or other applications, multiple windows will be opened when Firefox eventually loads. One will contain the hyperlinked page, the other will open my home page and positioned ~20px further right.

I had only noticed this within Adium X on my office Mac (Leopard, PPC, 3.5.8) but it is now happening on my Intel-based Snow Leopard system at home.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Ensure Firefox is not presently running.
2. Receive a message containing a hyperlink in any application.
3. Click on the hyperlink and wait for Firefox to start.
Actual Results:  
Multiple windows are opened, with the hyperlinked page appearing in the first (positioned correctly), while the second window displays my home page and is positioned further right.

Expected Results:  
A single window should open, displaying the hyperlinked page in a single tab.

Happens to me as well, both 4.0b7 and 4.0b9-pre. 10.6.5. Still unfixed from beta 1, please look into this.

That's bug 531552 which is fixed in 3.6.x, but not in 4.0 betas.

Is this still in review queue? Is it setup to be fixed soon?

See the bug mentioned in comment #2. The reason this bug is not duped is that it's reported with 3.5.8 and bug 531552 appeared in 3.6.
