User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; AIRF) Build Identifier: Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168 To secure my WinXP running desktop, I disabled a few services termed not essential, by resource tool kit and guide. And now the one started first i.e. firefox.exe (3.0a.1), of Gran Paradiso installed in D:\Program Files\Gran Paradiso\Firefox.exe, takes over the firefox.exe (22.214.171.124) installed in separate directory i.e. D:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe or vice versa. However, FF3.0a.1, do show the webpage, when its started first, but FF126.96.36.199 fails to show the webpage, though IE6, is working fine, with the services curtailed. Is there some problem with FireFox 188.8.131.52, in restricted WinXPSP2 services mode? And the merger is unprecedented ever seen. Where IE6 works flawless, Firefox184.108.40.206 has problem loading page. Dont know, which typical service has to be enabled for the later's smooth functioning. Please help. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.With Cable Internet enabled, double click Firefox220.127.116.11 to show home page google search site. 2.Problem loading page. Double click IE6 with SP, all webpages load fine. Can logon to bugzilla & all sites needed. 3. Double click Gran Paradiso 3.0a.1 (installed by default in different directory than Mozilla Firefox 18.104.22.168), still the shortcut to Gran Paradiso runs Firefox 22.214.171.124. with the result problem loading page. 4. Reboot Pc. Start IE6. Everything flawless for net connectivity. 5. Double click Shortcut to Gran Paradiso, net connectivity seems ok, though delayed. 6. Double Click shortcut to Firefox126.96.36.199, and starts is a fresh window of Gran Paradiso, showing home page and ok connectivity. Actual Results: Firefox 188.8.131.52 is dependant on some non essential Win XP service, which i disabled. Gran Paradiso and IE6, both could show webpages, in the same restricted scervices environment. Only, when Firefox was started first, Gran Paradiso could not open its own program, but instead opened up new window of Firefox 184.108.40.206 Expected Results: Naturally, considering Firefox 220.127.116.11 more secure and stable & O/s independant, than IE6, it should have been working perfect and IE6, should have failed, which should be highly dependant on WinXP SP2 services. And above that, the version 3.0a.1, which is still in alpha stage, was working against the final release of 18.104.22.168, which is a paradox. Further, nothing to exzplain about, shortcut to FF22.214.171.124.exe loading GP3.0a.1 and vice versa, in restricted environment.
Not a security-sensitive bug.
If i understand you correctly you want to run 2 Firefox instances (126.96.36.199 and GranParadiso) at the same time. To do this you need to 2 Profiles (one for each Version, when you want to run them at the same time) and the Moz-No_Remote Switch, see http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?p=1757367
not really a bug, invalid this?
This bug was reported on Firefox 2.x or older, which is no longer supported and will not be receiving any more updates. I strongly suggest that you update to Firefox 3.6.3 or later, update your plugins (flash, adobe, etc.), and retest in a new profile. If you still see the issue with the updated Firefox, please post here. Otherwise, please close as RESOLVED > WORKSFORME http://www.mozilla.com http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Safe+mode
