Description

6 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0
Build ID: 20121010144125

Steps to reproduce:

From the menu bar, I selected History -> View All History, then accidentally closed the main browser window leaving the History window open.  Then I tried to get the main window back by double clicking on an item in the history list.


Actual results:

The browser hung; moving the cursor anywhere over the library window showed an hourglass and it would not respond to anything.  I finally had to use Windows Task Manager to kill the process so that I'd be allowed to open Firefox again.


Expected results:

It should have opened a new main browser window, just as if I'd clicked on a link from outside Firefox.
