I am forced to make a new profile almost every time I want to browse. This only began to happen after upgrading to 1.4rc1. I have not noticed this at home where I also use 1.4rc1. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Run Browser or Mail 2. Quit after finished 3. Try to run either again Actual Results: message box asking to choose a profile, but the one I want says it is in use already. Expected Results: simply brought up the browser with the only profile I had created
Kirk, Can you verify no other mozilla.exe processes are running using Task Manager? Do you use the QuickLaunch feature? Generally that message comes up with profile is being used by another process -
Summary: Mozilla won't allow me to use a profile twice. → Mozilla won't allow me to use a profile twice.
this usually means that even though you closed the browser window, the process is still running and hogging the profile, in this case you need to go into Task Manager (Ctrl+Shift+Esc), find mozilla.exe process and kill it. also have you tried mozilla 1.5, is the prblem still there?
same problem on multiple nt4 machines here, mozilla.exe simply doesnt quit fully
