and do not close the import window when it pops up.

What do you mean by this? When you import a file, the import dialog is shown modally. If you don't close it, but keep it open, you aren't importing. And you also cannot import another file.

Not sure I understand the step. Import window suppose to close once importing is done, how can you keep the window open?

Please check that the video did not trigger the BUG in English, while in other languages, there is a high probability that it will occur

Ah, I see. The Import dialog isn't displayed modally, so the underlying UI is still usable when the dialog is shown. So you are able to trigger an import twice. Smells like a bug.

@RayLee , thanks! that helps. I can very well reproduce for 2.93.0 LTS but not reproducible for 2.92.0 release.

Confirming the report.

@Zandman , similar behavior you can find in this report -> #88755 (Blender opens a new render window even when one is open already.) (Similar but not same)

I'd say this is a generic Blender UI issue. The exact same is possible when opening a regular file dialog (i.e. File -> Open file) or the Preferences dialog. All these dialogs are displayed non-modal. Maybe this has changed, because the Blender interface guidelines say modal dialogs should be prevented as much as possible. But I'd say file dialogs should be displayed modally.

Guess this crash is also fixed by 84d03a1298 in 3.0.0 and further versions.
Not bisected though
