FF19 Erststart muß von externem Prg. erfolgen sonst fubktiern kein ext. links zb. Thunderbird

Posted

Wenn ich FF starte und danach einen Link aus Thunderbird klicke kommt die Meldung FF wird bereits ausgeführt. Neuinstallation, neues Profil oder neuer Windows Nutzer bringt keine Änderung. Nur die 1. Aplikation die FF öffnet erlaubt auch zukünftig das ausführen der links. Eine andere Funktioiert nicht. Wenn FF direkt geöfnet wird, kann man von keiner ext. Appl einen Link öffen. (IE funktiert das Problelos)

Einzige Workaround FF immer zuerst aus einem Thunderbird link starten ! dann gehen wenigstens die links aus TB

Check the target field in the Firefox desktop shortcut and make sure that you do not start Firefox with the -no-remote switch or have set the environment variable MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 (Control Panel > System > Advanced > Environment variables).

Question owner

The variable MOZ_NO_REMOTE is not set. I use only the default profile. I have had multiple in the past, but after reinstalling FF, only one. But I have multiple Thunderbird profiles ... is there may be a depdendcy ?

Did you also check the Firefox desktop shortcut(s) and maybe the properties of the Firefox.exe program in the Firefox program folder?

when you initially open firefox by pressing the windows-key+R & opening firefox.exe, does the problem occur too when you open external links subsequently?

Question owner

Yes ! open firefox by pressing the windows-key+R & opening firefox.exe then open Thunderbird for examaple ... same Problem

Question owner

Ok I will do. Back soon ..

isnt it strange, that it works from 1 external applikation if I klick a link. any other app with links came up with the same error as wehn I start FF directly. Something locket the execution either for FF start only or 1 App+FF if it is invoked from there

it sounds a bit like some sort of firewall is controlling/limiting the access to the browser but i'm not sure if norton has such capabilites since i don't use it myself...

Question owner

ok ... I come closer ...

I figured out, that the problem depends on Thunderbird !! Indipendend if I start in save mode or not I can use external links from other diffrent Apps, as long I dont use a thunderbird link !

In thunderbird I use different profiles .. and some add ons ... we should have a closer look threre

Question owner

save mode thunderbird ... same prob.

can you look if the thunderbird shortcut contains the -no-remote switch (that has been a solution to the same issue here) or also reset firefox as default browser...

Question owner

I use: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird.exe" -no-remote -p xxxx-profile

I thougt the problem is happen, if I use that switch opening FF not TB ! Ok ... how could I use profiles without that switch ?

yes, this is really strange & it looks like firefox is somehow inheriting the -no-remote parameter from the thunderbrid instance. this is bug #382477, which hasn't been addressed for a long time...

Question owner

bad news ... and it looks that nobody works on it ! any Idea for a work around ?

Question owner

I find a workaround you can use the profile switcher Add-on

Anyway I hope it will be fixed !

Thx for your help
