From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.2.19 i686; en-US; rv:0.9+) Gecko/20010522
BuildID:    2001052213

Hi, I am using XChat 1.4.3 on a Redhat 7.0/Ximian 1.0 box
I used to be able to click on URL's inside Xchat and launch them in existing
Mozilla windows.

I can't seem to do this with Build 2001052213. I can only launch via a new
window. I don't see this behaviour with Mozilla 0.9 or Netscape 4.76

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Launch Xchat, go into a channel
2. Type a URL http://www.mozilla.org
3. Take your mouse and hover over the URL, right click. You'll get a menu. Click
on Netscape (existing). 
4. also, try clicking on Netscape (new Window)

Actual Results:  Clicking on Netscape (existing) does nothing
Clicking on Netscape (new Window) launches a new window with the URL loaded

Expected Results:  Clicking on Netscape (existing) must switch existing page to
the URL in XChat

See also bug 75138 which would make this a "pref". The current behavior should
stay as a default.

related to bug 77160? (gnome integration)

This is very probably related to bug 41527 / bug 83092. If you check the xchat
options, it is most likely using mozilla -remote to open the URL

If you look at the attached gif, you can see the handlers for Netscape. The
mozilla one I added myself based on the NS ones. This clearly demonstrates a
dependancy on 'mozilla -remote' working.
