Firefox freezes when it recieves a "-new-tab" command

Posted

Hello, I am using a c# program to send Firefox some commands.Everything works great, but sometimes when I send a -new-tab command like: "firefox.exe -new-tab http://www.google.com"

Firefox freezes for few seconds before opening the new tab.I tried removing all the parameters from the command and just send "http://www.google.com" to the system while Firefox is set as the default browser, and the same problem arises again.

I also tried doing the same while Firefox is in safe-mode and still the problem appears sometimes. How can I troubleshoot this and know what makes firefox freeze for those few seconds?.

Thanks in advance

I tried sending commands from cmd ,wscrip,.net all faced the same problem. Turns out, the plugin "HP simplepass" was causing this problem.

Hello MahmoudJ,

Thank you for contacting Mozilla Support. This is a really difficult issue and I'm not sure that this is the appropriate place to get assistance with it. Do you have the same results when you open Firefox through a command prompt rather than in your program?

You might have a better chance at getting an answer by posting on Stackoverflow under the Firefox tag. I've linked to their forum below.
