- Select a suggestion in account provisionner suggestion list -> an account provisionner tab opens
- File/New/Get a new email address... get a suggestion list
- select a suggestion
- suggestion list dlg window does not disappear (beach ball), already opened account provisioner tab is not updated (or no new tab is opened for new suggestion)

Blake and I talked about this, and we think the ideal behaviour would be that if there is an Account Provisioner tab opened, then going to File > New > Get a New Mail Account should focus that tab.

Ok, you should be able to just apply this on top of comm-central properly now, without the other patches (which have now landed).

Patch v1

Okay, this does seem to do what we agreed on, and it even handles the case where I create an existing mail account, and then hit the button to try to create a new one…  ;)  ui-r=me!

I think we're okay without testing all the various ways to get to that state, but if you wanted to add a check for launching the accountWizard, and then clicking the "get a new account" button, I wouldn't complain too loudly either.

Other than that, it seems fine to me.

Okie doke, I've augmented the test to check the button from the wizard as well.
