User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1) Gecko/20081007 Firefox/3.1b1
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9.1b1) Gecko/20081007 Firefox/3.1b1

this might be an adobe air problem, but it worked fine pre: FF3.1b1 installation 

clicking links in adobe air application (tweetdeck, but have heard from people using other AIR apps that it is happening for them too) causes error 

"A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

- deleting .parentlock in firefox profile doesn't solve problem
- reinstalling AIR application doesn't solve problem
- reinstalling AIR doesn't solve problem



Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install ff 3.1
2. launch AIR app (tweetdeck) 
3. click link in AIR app
Actual Results:  
error as described above

Expected Results:  
link should open in new tab or new window

Same as Bug#460187. This problem also occurs when clicking on a link in any standalone Flash Player instance. Additionally, closing the browser and clicking on a link opens the browser but doesn’t navigate to the link.
