A new console is opened whenever the browser restarts in debug mode, such as after installing an add-on.

It should use the same console instead. 

This was introduced after the service was landed, in particular from bug 711692.  It was added originally because it was suspected it would help a callback app in use error that happened intermittently, but it wasn't needed after all.  The side effects were not all fully understood at the time of adding.

This is where it was added by the way:

The CreateProcessAsUserW call is not currently used but should be consistent with the CreateProcessW one.
