FF starts new window if multiple URLs are specified on the command line
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1 Build ID: 20120615112143 Steps to reproduce: Start Firefox with multiple URLs specified. Actual results: Firefox starts new instance with tabs for each URL, ignoring any current running instance. Expected results: New tabs should be open in current running instance.
do you mean bug 384177 ? Note: All Firefox windows are a single instance
No, bug 38417 states that each URL is opened in a new window, where here I'm saying that each URL is open in separate tabs, but in a new window. Firefox will open a link in a new tab in a current window if only one URL is specified on the command line, but if two or more URLs are specified, a new window is open with each URL in a separate tab. I noticed it today when looking into a problem with Kmail opening duplicate tabs in a new window when clicking on a link from within an email. I was trying different things from the command line and noticed this behavior. I don't think the Kmail behavior is related. It started happening after a reboot and not right after the FF 13.0 to 13.0.1 update. I also don't know how log Firefox has been acting this way.
