User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Profile manager will not allow me open a second instance or change the URL on the already open instance of mozilla. If I have a mozilla session minimized and am reading email, I click on a URL and instead of opening a new mozilla instance or changing the URL on the already open instance I get the manage profile screen which will not allow me to continue unless I create a new profile. If I select the profile in use, I am returned an error stating that "Mozilla cannot use the profile "Default User" because it is in use. Please choose another profile or create a new one." Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open Mozilla and minimize it 2.Open email (I use Evolution) and click on a URL link in a message) 3.The Select User Profile displays and forces me to create a new profile or quit. Actual Results: User Profile Manager screen appears and forces a quit or create a new profile. Expected Results: Mozilla used to and should open a new instance of Mozilla with the clicked link or it should change the URL in the already opened instance. Ideally this should be a user choice from Preferences on how this is handled. This was not a problem in the last versions 1.3 and I don't think it was present in the Beta 1.4a (but I am not sure about that since I took the beta off very soon after installing).
