From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0rc3) Gecko/20020521 BuildID: 2002052109 Once mozilla is running, if I try to run another instance by invoking it on the command-line (or any other method), I get the "Select User Profile" popup. I have only on profile ("default"). When I click on "start mozilla" I get the error: Mozilla cannot use the profile "default" because it is in use. Please choose another profile or create a new one. Older builds of mozilla allowed me to run multiple instances in this fashion. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Mozilla. 2. Try to start Mozilla again (*not* by clicking on "File->New"). 3. Error occurs. Actual Results: Mozilla complains that the user profile is already in use. Expected Results: The new instance of Mozilla should run normally using the same user profile as before. It should be roughly equivalent to clicking on "File->New".
"File New" doesn't start a new instance. Running 2 instances can't cause profile corruption and we added this warning to avoid this. Do you want a new instance or a new browser window ?
