Description Ben Levenson 2002-04-18 21:22:04 EDT
Description of Problem:
after choosing to convert my netscape 4 profile I am left with 5
mozilla-bin PIDs, but no browser window ever pops up.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. rm -rf ~/.netscape/ ~/.mozilla/ (and for good measure, ~/.galeon/)
2. start netscape, browse a couple of sites, exit netscape.
3. start mozilla, select 'convert' netscape profile, wait for browser window.

Actual Results:
no browser window -- multiple mozilla-bin threads.

Additional information:
Mozilla will works without issue if the PIDs are killed and it is restarted.
Comment 2 Michael Redinger 2002-04-21 09:11:54 EDT
Some additional notes:   
- Conversion seems to be successful. Eg. all the netscape mail settings are   
  correctly converted.   
- The same thing happens if you don't choose "convert profiles" and then   
  "manage profiles". In the following dialog one profile is already    
  available. If you select it and select "Start Mozilla", a popup dialog   
  says that this is a Netscape Profile and asks you if you want to copy it.   
  Now mozilla hangs as described.
