1. Load 
file:///c|/windows/desktop/moz1007/chrome/comm/content/navigator/navigator.xul 
in url bar (change directory to wherever you have mozilla installed).
2. Click the throbber.

Result: www.mozilla.org loaded inside inner chrome.
Expected: www.mozilla.org replaces inner chrome.

This happens after you load chrome://navigator/content/navigator.xul as well, 
but I think that's less of a problem.

Same with the "Mozilla" menu on the "taskbar".

A typical user will not load "navigator.xul" into the browser window. Thanks for
the info, but we don't plan on fix recursion problems like this.

I disagree with wontfixing this, because it lets websites alter the behavior of 
the throbber and the fixed "taskbar" bookmarks.

nav triage team:

Does this still happen? At any rate, don't think we'll have time in beta1 to get 
to this. Marking nsbeta1-

Not fixing navigator-in-navigator bugs. If you have a burning desire, reassign
to yourself or assign to nobody.

No longer seeing this for web copies of navigator.xul.  This does still happen 
when navigator.xul is loaded from chrome:///.  Loading navigator.xul from 
file:/// crashes immediately :(

Leaving as wontfix.
