User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0 Build ID: 20150212154903 Steps to reproduce: Per here: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=716110#c37 I'm using Windows, I have not tested on other platoforms. I click the firefox icon, this launches my default firefox profile. Then I go to run and run firefox.exe -P Dev -no-remote This launches my second profile. Then I do firefox.exe -P Dev -remote -new-tab "about:blank" but it doesnt seem to work :( Actual results: Nothing happens Expected results: Tab should be opened in the targeted profile.
Component: Untriaged → Startup and Profile System
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Oh my goodness, the -remote was removed in FF36? I cant find the bug for it, but the docs say so: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Command_Line_Options#-remote_remote_command Is there an alternative?
Btw that explains why it didnt work, ive been using FF36 (im on beta channel) wow so odd why remove it O_O i need it heavily for my addon profilist: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/profilist/
