Remote interface doesn't work under Linux/Power
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051217 Debian/1.5.dfsg-2 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051217 Debian/1.5.dfsg-2 Firefox/1.5 On my Linux/PowerPC machine, the remote interface to open a URL from another application (terminal, shell, RSS reader...) doesn't work. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Start firefox. 2. From a shell, type "firefox http://www.mozilla.org/". Actual Results: After about 15 seconds, I get an error box saying: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." Expected Results: The URL should have been opened in the running Firefox instance. No problem under Linux/x86 and under Mac OS X. There was no problem either with Firefox 1.0.x. This bug has also been reported on the Debian BTS: http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=343913

i can reproduce this on my ibook, is a very annoying problem, i must use 1.0.x...
I confirm this bug. It happens to me the same way as to the reporter. I have a PowerBook G4 Apple laptop. It appears on 1.5 version, not on the 1.0 version of firefox. Eugen
This is a problem for all big-endian systems, the patch in bug 321317 fixes it. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 312154 ***
