This isn't just stupid (given you just get a task bar popup when Firefox is already running) but it is really REALLY annoying because a lot of the time Firefox is being started by external means, e.g. a url from a website or an email What happens is you get an error message and Firefox and your link is not started. Please make this modeless, or provide a default means of not providing this daft modal dialog until after Firefox has started. Thanks. Reproducible: Always Actual Results: Firefox doesn't start. Your link is not navigated to. Expected Results: For Firefox to start as expected.
Quite sure this has been resolved for Firefox 4.
Yes, this has been fixed with the refactoring, which was part of bug 511529.
