Clicking external link(e.g. Link is discord) will always use default profile
I always using terminal to open my firefox by.
firefox.exe -profile path\to\my\profile
but when I click any external link, firefox keep using the default profile to open the link.
I've tried 1. Google somthing about "maybe there's a command switch to force firefox keep in single instance" --- no luck. 2. Using "-no-remote" switch to open my profile
The only solution now is migrate my current profile to default profile to fix this issue, but I just don't like more stuff in %appdata% and also harder to manage the profile.
Hope someone can help me out ! Thanks !
info: Windows 10 1607 Firefox 70.0 x64
When you click a link that opens the default profile, type
about:profiles in the Firefox address bar. On this page, you will likely see two profiles. Click the Set as default profile button for the profile that is your regular.
Firefox changed how it handles multiple versions of Firefox installed on the same system in a previous update. For some users, this caused the issue that you are experiencing. This will fix the problem.
Hope this helps.
