From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; 0.8.1) Gecko/20010309 BuildID: 2001030904 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Load page http://www.mozillazine.org/build_comments/ 2. Right-click on one of the "here" links to join mozillazine chat 3. Choose "Open Link in new window" from the context menu Actual Results: Chatzilla not startet, but new browser window opened. In "Tasks" appears a nameless entry, staying in memory even after all Mozilla windows were closed. Expected Results: Chatzilla being launched. I've twice reinstalled my build, cleaned old user data and even created a new profile, so (at least I hope so:-\ ) my box isn't to blame. The point of the bug is that a "ghost" instance of Mozilla is created (visible in "Tasks") which even remains after *all* Mozilla windows are closed. This little "ghost" can only be killed with Ctrl-Alt-Del.
This is definately happening on win2000 with a build from march 9 confirming
Could you try opening up components/chatzilla-service.js in your mozilla directory, and changing the line w.open("chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul?" + channel.URI.spec, "_blank", "chrome,menubar,toolbar,resizable"); into... w.openDialog("chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul?" + channel.URI.spec, "_blank", "chrome,menubar,toolbar,resizable");
Upper patch fixes the problem for me.
superbug checked in, mass marking all dependents fixed.
