Steps to reproduce:

OS: Windows 7, Home Basic

When I run two Thunderbird-profile simultaneously, I see a very strange situations. All link in all messages are valid. Firefox profile was previously cleared: no extensions, no bars. Firefox is default browser.

SITUATION (I)
1) run Firefox (it have just default profile): "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" 
2) run 1-st TB-profile: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -p
3) run 2-st TB-profile: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -p profile_name -no-remote
4) click on any link from any message from 1-st TB-profile
5) click on any link from any message from 1-st TB-profile
6) click on any link from any message from 2-st TB-profile

SITUATION (II)
1) run 2-st TB-profile: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -p profile_name -no-remote
2) click on any link from any message from 2-st TB-profile
3) click on any link from any message from 2-st TB-profile
4) run 1-st TB-profile: "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -p
5) click on any link from any message from 1-st TB-profile



Actual results:

SITUATION (I)
1) Firefox is running on blank page
2) OK
3) OK
4) link opened in new tab in Firefox
5) link opened in new tab in Firefox
6) Firefox error message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you
must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."

SITUATION (II)
1) OK
2) Firefox is running from "clicked link" page
3) Firefox error message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you
must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system."
4) OK
5) Firefox error message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you

5) link opened in new tab in Firefox
6) link opened in new tab in Firefox

Reproducible on the 01/15 Nightly with Thunderbird 17.0.2.

I opened two Thunderbird profiles. All the links from the first one were loaded fine in Nightly.

I got the following message for all the links I tried to open from the second profile: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.".
