Details

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.
