From Bugzilla Helper:

BuildID:    2001060703

After I run mozilla -turbo, starting Mozilla brings
up 2 browser windows.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "mozilla -turbo"
2. Run "mozilla" (or double-click a Mozilla icon)

Actual Results:  Two separate browser windows appear.  (But really fast!)

Expected Results:  Only one browser window should appear.

I have tried this on 2 Windows-2000 systems I thought were
identical (both with identical hardware, both systems installed
from the same Norton Ghost disk image).  It works fine on one,
it does this on the other.

What does it do if you don't run the preloader? There was a bug in some earlier
moz builds that opened 2 windows when you first ran it, but that got fixed a
while ago (0.8 i think, but I'm probably wrong :)

If the preloader isn't run, it works fine -- one window.

Any tests you can think of to run on this computer I'll be glad
to do (but it's just a W2K workstation ... no development tools).

FWIW, one of the windows is about:blank, and the other is the
user's home page.

This happens on mine too, as described (on win98)
The empty window starts in diminished mode (not maximized), while the other
(home page one) starts maxamized as it should

Please verify that this is still a problem in Jun 13 or later builds.  I fixed a
number of things related to this and it should no longer be a problem.
