I'm running Ubuntu 17.10, with Firefox 59.0.2. I am unable to open a private session at the same time as I have a regular session open.
Also, if I start by opening a private session, I CAN open a regular session afterwards. However, whenever I do open them in that order, the regular session acts just like a private session, i.e. does not remember history, even though it does not have that purple "private color" on the start page.
I'm using the commands "firefox" in terminal to run a regular session and "firefox -private" to run a private session.
Does anyone know of a fix?
Solved: Firefox opens external links in a new window AND new profile, instead of using the in-use browser settings

This is in Linux Mint 18, Fx 52.3.7 esr.
I'm posting this for others benefit, if some standard fixes don't work.
I'll cut to the chase. Once upon a...oops, sorry, Rock - wrong hat. One day links opened from external apps stopped opening in tabs in the current window as they had done for eons. I read numerous articles & posts on sites, including https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1193456 various fixes, which worked for some.
In mine, external links started opening a new window, using a different, old profile, but used the current Fx version. Changing the 3 about:config prefs mentioned in the linked post above, that control link opening behavior wasn't my problem or a solution. Also, disabled TabMix Plus, that has tab opening settings. Nada.
Even though I've used one profile almost exclusively since Jan. 2018, external links recently started opening in an old profile & new window. At first I thought it might be a desktop file issue, as some paths in old Fx launchers commands no longer existed. Cleaning out the defunct ones was a good idea but no solution.
I discovered the same old profile was always called by links in external applications. That lead to finding the old profile was back to the default profile in the profile manager. I edited the profiles.ini file (usually in the root "firefox" folder containing the profiles) & made the new profile the default. No change in link opening.
(you can access profile manager even if firefox is running, using the command: firefox -P -no-remote Don't monkey around with anything unless you know what you're doing or get help.
The old profile being set as default probably shouldn't have made external links open in a "new window" even if the profile in use wasn't the "default", because the Fx version in use said it WAS the default browser.
It wasn't the whole problem. The 3 about:config prefs are about links opening in same or new window, not, "open a different profile for external links only." That may be a bug or coded behavior that KB articles I've seen don't discuss.
The new Fx version & new profile still showed "Firefox is currently your default browser," and "Always check if Firefox is your default browser" was checked, as it had been. It said that, but wasn't respecting it.
I thought I'd outsmart the external apps & move the old profile. That just made them mad & complained that "the profile (or files?) you're trying to access (the old profile) can't be located," so links from external apps wouldn't open.
I checked Preferences > General tab again after hiding the old profile and now it said, "Firefox is NOT your default browser, moron." Little harsh. Somehow, as long as the old profile was accessible, even after the corrections - that I've done many times over years, external links were hell bent on using the old profile, long after it WASN'T the default.

When I try to use any web page with WebRTC, such as https://mozilla.github.io/webrtc-landing/gum_test.html or https://webrtc.github.io/samples/src/content/getusermedia/resolution/ I get an error "NotReadableError: Failed to allocate videosource"
But only on Windows 10 Pro. Not on Centos6 or 7, or on Windows 7 or 8. I have tried 3 different though similar systems with Windows 10, tried different user accounts, tried nightly Firefox, but always the same error (and no video feed)
I subscribed to https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1418827 but there have been no updates.

This Mozilla support forum DOES NOT have this problem. Please notice I have pressed [Enter] at the end if each line. This is the third line. There are no blank lines. The following is copied from another un-related forum about "double spacing".
Before I describe this problem, let me describe my configuration. I am running Linux MINT on an Apple iMac. There is no Apple software on this machine. Firefox Quantum is my browser of choice. [Enter]
This is a new line. I now see three lines above, auto-word-wrap after 'Apple', and no extra blank lines. [Enter]
Now I preview my typing, and there are extra blank lines added after each. [Enter]
Have not seen this CR-LF problem since using DOS & WordPerfect (circa 1985).
CarriageReturn & LineFeed.
This is my 7th line of text. Count 'em. Depending on the width of this window, you may have more or less lines due to the auto-word-wrap feature. You counted the first blank line? CSS defaults to the Top Margin + Font Height = first blank line.

Also, Mozilla Thunderbird defaults to this oddity, meaning all eMails I sent, were received double-spaced. However, it has File, Edit/Preferences/Composition/HTML, checkbox labeled: 'Use Paragraph format instead of Body Text by default.' I switched the X to space, turning double-line-spacing OFF.
My question: How do we turn this oddity OFF in Firefox ?

Firefox has (and has had for a long time) a config item "gfx.color_management.mode". The values are documented in . But, I cannot find the definition of "tagged graphics" and "rendered graphics" anywhere. It seems reasonable to assume that a .tif file with an embedded color profile is a "tagged graphic", and that a .jpg file without a profile is a "rendered graphic". But what about a .jpg file with an embedded profile? After all .jpg files have EXIF tags and a color profile can be attached as one of the tag values.

Some ppl use hundreds of certs in their browser. I.e. atm to delete / renew a server cert you have to check all these certs one-by-one. A search field woud greatly help (afaik as already available in M$ certmgr).
Thanks for considering
