Firefox Nightly opens outside links in a new window

There's a new feature on Nightly that lets multiple profiles run at the same time. However, since i run my Firefox on a manually-defined (with -profile) profile, any links opened from outside Firefox open in a new window, with the blank default profile. Is there a way to override this?

Are you using -no-remote on your command line? That will definitely prevent external links from opening in that session.

Otherwise, if Nightly is your default browser, Nightly would normally open the link in the running profile that was started without the -no-remote switch.

I say that based on older versions, because I haven't run Nightly for the past 4 months.

Yeah, it's a very late update. Can't say how late, keep forgetting to update every day, but it's at worst two weeks ago. And no, my only CL is -profile.

Hmm, there might be more Nightly users on Reddit. You could check for similar threads or start a new one here:
