Links from external applications just open a blank new window

Posted

When I click on a link in any external application, FF will open a new window with an empty tab. Copy-pasting the link works.

I tried:

  • Safe Mode
  • Clean Profile

... to no result.

I am starting Firefox using a launcher script (Apple Script editor) which just does this: do shell script "nohup /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P -no-remote >/dev/null 2>&1 &"

It always worked, and it also works when I switch to Chrome or Safari. It's just firefox which does not any more.

Any help here?

This has always worked before, so I think this is a bug somehow ... .
