From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.18pre21 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010105 BuildID: 2001010517 When there's a sidebar opened on a window, any new browser window opened will have the sidebar open. This is undesirable, because I expect that when I open a new windows from a browser window without a sidebar then the new window should not assume a sidebar (diminishing the display areat) I'm using mozilla 0.7 Thanks, Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Open sidebar in a window(internet search for instance) Open a new browser window from another window without the sidebar. Actual Results: I had a browser window that has the sidebar opened in another browser window. Expected Results: Sidebar open/close should be inherited from the parent browser window. (the window from which the new browser window was opened)
Works for me on Linux and on NT4. I get exactly what you state as expected results: the new browser window has the sidebar open iff the previous one has it open, too. Please check your Preferences ... Navigator ... Internet Search: do you have "open the search tab in my sidebar" activated? If so, the sidebar opens automatically on a page with Internet search results.
The visibility of the sidebar depends on whether it was last opened or closed, not whether it is currently open or closed. This also applies to the toolbars.
Build 2001011204 Sidebar remains open or closed in new window as it should. Sidebar choice does not change from site to site or new/old window.
