It might be a problem that appears after some changes in your preferences or after installing add-ons. What I suggest is to try to reproduce it with a new profile: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Managing-profiles#w_starting-the-profile-manager If you want to save your important data from your old profile I suggest you could try to refresh Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Procedures-to-diagnose-and-fix/Refresh-Firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings/ta-p/23405 Or Reset Firefox preferences by deleting Firefox preference files: https://support.mozilla.org/t5/Procedures-to-diagnose-and-fix/Reset-Firefox-preferences-to-troubleshoot-and-fix-problems/ta-p/1340
Sorry for late reply, I have entered in .mozilla dir, move all profiles in OLD new Dir run firefox -p create a new profile ok till now? entered in the second link of you past message and about:support and "refresh fiefox" ok? now is totally clean as it is "out of the box from firm" I created with my kubuntu box a url link (right click on desktop and creaete url link) I put for example: yahoo name http://www.yahoo.com it opens one firefox with two contemporary tabs reading same page for me no, extensions plug ins or so on, now it is out, is totalky clean Next try it copi .mozilla in .mozilla.save apt-get purge firefox delete .mozilla in my home and everywhere and reput mozilla firefox and retry but give my time, I am very busy and ill now thanks byeb ye
runned sudo apt-get purge --remove firefox checked no ppa for firefox delete everything concern firefox sudo updatedb locate mozilla deleted all mozilla firefox firefox directories on my box ... mozilla chache.. certificate and so on reboot sudo upddatedb locate mozilla is clean sudo apt-get install firefox it open url.desktop with firefox and it open like before in two tabs like before I can try with chrome, opera chromium if happens so if yes... kde/kubuntu problems if no ... mozilla... I think to have done everything is possible to do with a "virgin" firefox bye
I treyed now sudo update-alternatives --config x-www-browser change to chrome when I click on kde.desktop linked url created from me, ok, open only one tab so is a a firefox bug to open kde user auto created shortcut to url
I really don't know if is a firefox bug or ar kde bug, ...... or both I mean a bug about communication from event clicking on a .desktop file containing an URL destination and other browser, in this case firefox don't understand well It's not a HUGE problem but... you can create a desktop shortcut to firefox passing url as argument and it's work 100% fine, it opens only one tabs with chrome, chromium without "WORKAROUND" it works! tried now with opera same as before if I can help tell me how to debug it... there is a function to lof everything firefox do? I can repeat complete purge firefox and erase of .mozilla and firefox orphans files/directories and start from 0... I send the log... tell me
