I wrote some browser code in 3.0 (probably one of the later M's) that used
the Application Window to wrap the browser. Now I find that the timing has
changed and getShell() returns null. This results in an error but I still
get the browser window. In fact, I am getting the IE window instead of the
application window. This is pretty much what I wanted. I didn't want to have
to deal with creating a wrapper UI if I could use the browser's UI. Is there
a way to get this to work or was I just stumbling over a nice bug that
caused other problems?

Hi Jim,

> was I just stumbling over a nice bug that caused other problems?
Yes... I assume you run into a manifestation of
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=57068

As per comment 8, you will not see that behaviour in builds >20050126. Make
sure your code is no longer throwing an error or any exception from within
the OpenWindowListener.open notification.

However, I DO want the behavior of IE opening its own window. With your fix
it seems that I can never get this case. Is there a way to make IE or
whatever browser pop up its window with all of its own toolbars and such?
