User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040803 Firefox/0.9.3 Build Identifier: First apologies if this bug got filed in duplicate, I thought that I filed this already, but it is not showing up. I installed 0.8 for Linux (running Mandrake 10 Official). I went back to 0.7.3. after noticing that the command line remote -option does not work with 0.8 with my setup. This is needed for a wrapper that is to handle mailto-clicks from browser without opening the Profiles-dialog if Thunderbird is already running. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Thunderbird and leave it open. 2. from command line give command thunderbird -remote "mailto()" Actual Results: Error message: "Error: No running window found" Expected Results: Open a new "Compose" window within the existing Thunderbird instance.
I can confirm this on thunderbird 0.8 running RedHat 9. [kylek@kylepc ~/thunderbird]$ ./thunderbird --version (null) Thunderbird 0.8, Copyright (c) 2004 mozilla.org [kylek@kylepc ~/thunderbird]$ ./thunderbird -remote 'ping()' Error: No running window found [kylek@kylepc ~/thunderbird]$ ps -aefw | grep -i thunderbird kylek 19798 1 0 18:32 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh /home/kylek/thunderbird/thunderbird kylek 19811 19798 0 18:32 ? 00:00:00 /bin/sh /home/kylek/thunderbird/run-mozilla.sh /home/kylek/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin kylek 19816 19811 0 18:32 ? 00:00:08 /home/kylek/thunderbird/thunderbird-bin
