Something like: mozilla -newprocess which would not try to communicate with existing mozilla processes. If it used the same user profile, then it wouldn't allow modification of the profile, or perhaps using the same profile would be disallowed. The reason this would be useful is for testing applets or other pages that are likely to crash, or when using the editor so that a crash in the primary window doesn't cause the HTML editor to crash. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start up mozilla 2. Start up mozilla a second time 3. Actual Results: Single process running two windows Expected Results: Would like to have had a way to create two processes running two windows.
'mozilla -profilemanager' should do this, no?
from bug 40109 comment 43: set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 put that in autoexec.bat or on NT, set the environment variable in control panel|system (or in a batch file before running mozilla) after doing that, all attempts to start mozilla will open a new instance. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 131805 ***
