If you use X-remote commands with two or more Mozilla profiles (same user) open
on the same display, X-remote cannot distinguish between them and performs
operations on whichever window was used last.

This would help to ensure a proper implementation of bug 122698 and would also
help resolve problems in bug 151863.

patch includes gtk2.  I haven't tested with gtk2, but the relevant parts of the
code are identical.

This is a pretty frustrating bug for anyone on GNU/Linux using a Mozilla-based
browser to open URLs from other applications. There's a patch posted. Is there
any hope of speeding up the review process?
Comment 5 User image Andrew Hagen 2003-05-02 12:07:20 PDT
Patch exists.

Not blocking 1.4.

As Christopher Blizzard seems to be too busy for this, is there anyone else who
could do the review? Thanks. Although this bug in itself is probably not very
visible, it's supposedly blocking bug 122698 which is a PITA for virtually
everyone on Unix.
