Browser.show about as stupid modal window
From MozillaZine Knowledge Base
In Mozilla Suite (and SeaMonkey), â€œHelp → Aboutâ€ can open a new window to about: or a modal window with similar information. There were a number of outstanding issues with the modal window, so a preference toggled between the two. The preference and modal dialog have since been removed.
Possible values and their effects
