xremote ping() doesn't find running instance as of nightly 8/31
(Firefox :: General, defect)
(Reporter: lynn, Unassigned)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:9.0a1) Gecko/20110830 Firefox/9.0a1 Build ID: 20110830032952 Steps to reproduce: x64 "mozilla-xremote-client ping() (part of script) stopped working as of nightly 8/31 (& 9/1), dropping back to nightly 8/30 (or earlier) works fine. this is on fedora15 (x64) with latest updates. Actual results: x64 8/31 (&9/1) nightly mozilla-xremote-client -a firefox -p prof1 "ping()" "Error: Failed to find a running server" similar failure for mozilla-xremote-client -a firefox -p prof1 "openURL($http,new-tab)" Expected results: xremote ping() should have found running instance
work-around ... instead of invoking firefox with /usr/local/firefox/firefox -P prof1 --no-remote & use /usr/local/firefox/firefox-bin -P prof1 & then /usr/local/firefox/mozilla-xremote-client -a firefox -p prof1 "openURL($http,new-tab)" starts working

Very late comment: Is this still an issue with a recent Firefox build?
??? yes, well, it started working again and worked for very long time until mozilla-xremote-client disappeared from the nightly build a little over a month ago. Trying to use last available "mozilla-xremote-client" from nightly build also doesn't work with later builds.
