-remote handling broken on linux?
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040915 Firefox/0.10 StumbleUpon/1.998 Build Identifier: Mozilla Thunderbird-0.8 Newest build of thunderbird on linux x86. No matter what syntax I use, I cannot get any form of the -remote commands to do anything other then give an error message "No Running Window Found" Trying to integrate Firefox and Thunderbird - however I now cannot get Thunderbird to pop up a compose window for an already running copy of Thunderbird without getting the profile error dialog box. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start Thunderbird 2. Start Firefox 3. Click a mailto link Can also be reproduced by running Thunderbird and then in a terminal window running <thunderbird executable> -remote "mailto(email@example.com)" or any other form Actual Results: Error message about loading profiles. Expected Results: Should have opened a compose window with the relevant email address in the already running copy of TB Linux X86 (MDK 10) - error reproducible with builds downloaded from mozilla.org as well as packaged rpm's by Chip
