Sorry. There's no way this can happen by M5. In order to iterate over all open windows, I have a dependency on David Matiskella's window manager. Until that lands, this bug is dead in the water. Setting Target Milestone to M6, since I'm assuming that the window manager is slated to go in some time before M6 closes.
window.open doesn't even work on Mac and Linux. It won't before necko lands. Moving off to M8.
Giving this to danm. Basically our FindBlahByName method in nsWebShellWindow needs to know how to look over the window list.

now checking for webshell names among list of open windows.

The same failure is happening in M9 builds. It was working fine on the released M8 build. Re-tested bug on 07/27 and 07/22 Apprunner. Bug reopened.
Moving from M8 to M9 due to reopen!
Hmmm. Someone broke the window lookup-by-name code, middle of July. That's been fixed and this bug seems gone once again.
