User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040113 After installing Mozilla 1.6, I selected the only profile that I had defined. The browser started fine, but I could not then start my mail - it said the profile was 'in use' when I tried to select it. In examining my /home/userid/.mozilla/profile_name, I see a symbolic link called 'lock'. If I 'rm lock', I can enter my mail or browser. Otherwise, I can only open one or the other. Invoking either creates the lock file, which seems to stop the other from using the profile. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open browser - should not be prompted for profile (since it's the only one) 2. Open mail - I am asked to select a profile. If I select the only one available it says it's in use. 3. Actual Results: 'Profile in use' Expected Results: To be able to use the same profile for browser and mail at the same time
