I'm using current (syncing everyday) 0.9.4 branch (I hope it's going to be a new N6). 0.9.4+ (2001092512), Red Hat Rawhide Linux (current), kernel 2.4.9-ac15, KDE2.2.1. When I try: $ cd /opt/mozilla.cvs/mozilla/dist/bin $ ./mozilla & (startup output.. running...and then:) $ ./mozilla-bin -remote "openURL(http://underground.cz/,new-window)" No running window found. $ This WFM with at least 3 days older 0.9.4 pull from CVS.
Also worth testing the recent trunk builds to see if you can reproduce it there...
WFM with yesterday's trunk snapshot.
why aren't you using ./mozilla -xremote ... ?

Because neither ./mozilla -help (branch094) nor http://www.mozilla.org/unix/remote.html does mention -xremote switch. (and all of my and other scripts (for example Klipper from KDE 2.2.1) use -remote) I have tried -xremote "openURL(http://underground.cz/,new-window)" and this does open new-window but with "about:blank" (doesn't go to specified URL).
erm sorry -remote, my point was to use ./mozila instead of ./mozilla-bin
I tried both ./mozilla and ./mozilla-bin with same result.Summary:Trunk - everything ok. 0.9.4 milestone - everythinkg ok.Current 0.9.4 BRANCH -a) -remote ... tell's me there no running window of Mozillab) -xremote ... does start new window but doesn't go to specified URL just about:blank (probably because that's my preferences to new window settings)
(Excuse my last comment formatting - you can blame Konqueror. This time with mozilla:) I tried both ./mozilla and ./mozilla-bin with same result. Summary: Trunk - everything ok. 0.9.4 milestone - everythinkg ok.

-xremote shouldn't work at all. That's not a valid command line switch. And, for what it's worth, with my new x remote code in the 0.9.4 branch ( after the original 0.9.4 mozilla release ) -remote is working just fine.
This solved it: make clean gmake -f client.mk I should do "make clean" more often ... sorry.
