Mozilla Bug - Don't Panic!
Authored by: scotty on Sep 18, '01 04:01:33PM

Hi Rob,

I had a problem with 0.9.4 that rendered my browser unusable:

If a navigator window is killed so that there are no other Mozilla
windows open, it is impossible to produce a new
navigator window using the 'new navigator window' menu command.

If Mozilla is shutdown and reopened, it remembers this state -
So a browser window may never be opened. I tried opening a copy of
Mozilla from a different location, but the same problem occurred.

Anyway this may not be very common, but it was an official bug that
the Mozilla team fixed impressively quickly. I downloaded nightly
build 2001091521 (which is often a game of Russian roulette) and
have found it to be very stable. This is a great browser.

If anybody has this problem, don't waste time trying to fix it
by reinstalling etc. (this doesn't work... once you break it
it's broken for good) - try a nightly build, and if that build
turns out to be sucky, wait a day and then
try another one - you'll get somethin' good in the end.
