1. Launch mozilla 2. Edit/Preferences/Appearance 3. Check Navigator and Mozilla Mail 4. Exit 5. Launch mozilla -console Expected results: navigator and mozilla mail (and console) Actual results: navigator only (and console) Additional information: As per the URL, the general startup prefs are only heeded if argc == 1. However, the general startup code looks for -height and -width parameters. These parameter will also inhibit the general startup prefs. Instead, I believe the following steps should occur: 1. Always call DoCommandLines to process arguments 2. If no windows were created, follow the general startup prefs 3. If there are still no windows, create a browser window. Presumably you would copy the Ensure1Window function, move the prefs code from HandleArbitraryStartup into the new function and call it after DoCommandLines.

You might want to change the summary of bug 58523 to something like Appearence preferences ignored unless command line is empty
Verifying this as a duplicate of bug 58523. '-P, -nosplash switches unable to launch anything other than the browser' (expected: upon launch, mail, editor and browser windows should appear. result: only the browser window appears.)
