User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; HP-UX 9000/785; en-US; rv:1.8b4) Gecko/20050909 Firefox/1.4 Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 1.5 Beta 1 (20050920) in 1.0.6 I had an instance of Thunderbird running and could call 'thunderbird mailto:' from the commandline to open a mail compose window of the running instance. I'm using this to get a compose window with a keyboard shortcut. this doesn't work in 1.5b1 any more, but instead there's a window coming up, saying 'Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system'. when I confirm this, the new process returns with 'Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkmain.c: line 582: assertion `main_loops != NULL' failed.' there's documentation on the '-remote' feature available: http://www.mozilla.org/docs/command-line-args.html http://www.mozilla.org/unix/remote.html but this also doesn't work (and it even has disappeared from the '-h' help page). 'thunderbird -remote "mailto()"' just returns 'Error: Failed to send command: No response included' Reproducible: Always
dupe of Bug 281847?
the issue still exists in 1.5 Beta 2. only the behaviour is a bit different. this time the commandcall 'thunderbird mailto:' simply hangs and never comes back.
still reproducable in Thunderbird 1.5RC1: there's a window coming up, saying 'Thunderbird is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Thunderbird process, or restart your system'.
I can verify this on Solaris. And it's not only affecting Tbird but Ffox as well. Tested version is Tbird/Ffox 1.5 RC1. To me this should be considered as a blocker for 1.5.
Still reproducible in Firefox 1.5 RC2/Solaris: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5
still reproducable on Thunderbird 1.5rc2
I strongly believe this is a dupe of bug #312154. Work is in progress on that one.

I verified it in Firefox 22.214.171.124 and Thunderbird 126.96.36.199 and it works ok on both. the only thing left would be the online help that doesn't mention a word about the '-remote' option. it'd be cool if that could be fixed as well.
