Description

15 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8a) Gecko/20040419
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/2004041914 (modified by hand, see below)

In Gnome Terminal, when I highly a url, and use "Open link," I get
the "Select user profile" dialog, as if I had tried to open a second
instance of Mozilla.

The same thing happens when I give the openurl() or openfile() command
from the command line.


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to open url
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
Get "select user profile".

Expected Results:  
Open the URL.

This bug is NOT found on the latest build of 1.8a, which I am using
now (2004041908), but it IS found on the last TWO 1.7 builds, the
latest of which was 2004041914.  I'm reporting it because I'm afriad
it will find its way into the final 1.7 build.

I did find two other bugs that might be related, but I don't think
so.  They are 122498 and 171443.  The reason I don't think they are
related is that the current problem is a new one, and they are old
bugs.

Mass resolving a bunch of old bugs in the x-remote component in preparation for archiving it. If this bug is still valid and useful, please move it to the "Toolkit: Startup and Profile System" component and reopen it.
