Steps to reproduce:

I was able to reproduce this with a brand new TB profile on Mac. Not sure about Windows and Linux.

Basically, went to Tools -> Error Console, and entered 'openDialog("about:crashes");' as the code (as described on

A window opens up, and that works well. However, if you go to Window -> Inbox (where it shows your inbox), and then go to Window -> about:crashes, it does not work

Actual results:

about:crashes dialogue was not brought to the foreground

Expected results:

about:crashes is brought to the foreground when selected from the Window menu on the mac.
this sounds like the Activity monitor bug, temped to dup.
