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.

I have Firefox set up to always restore all tabs from my previous session and remember my search history, but all my tabs are gone and my search history has been wiped out. And the Restore Previous Session option is grayed out.

I don't even remember how I found most of the tabs that I have up, and I only have some of them bookmarked. Can you please help me get them back? Thank you.

By the way, I don't have Firefox as my default browser, so trying to download my profile didn't work. Do I need to have Firefox as my default browser to solve this problem?

One more thing: I was having some trouble with my internet connection, so I shut down my computer and rebooted my router. Is that why this happened, and does this mean that my tabs are gone forever?

By the way, I do see a folder icon on my desktop that says "Old Firefox Data," but all the data in there is from 2016, so that's not what I'm looking for.

I really need those tabs back. Thanks!

Hi:

I'd like to upgrade from Firefox 56.0.2 to the latest version, which I believe is Firefox 62.

A few questions:

1) Can I do this via Menu: Help-->About Firefox-->Check for Updates? That does seem to be the most direct and is how I used to do it before the Quantum version arrived

2) Will the bookmarks I now have in the Bookmarks Toolbar display as the new Bokmarks Toolbar along that horizontal (and then vertical) toolbar?.

I have very many of those. They are vital to me and would be painstaking to have to copy all those from some .html bookmarks file.

3) I saved login information and passwords for many sites. Will those still show on the Firefox 62 if I update it as described above?

Thanks: eliuri Firefox 56.0.2 Windows 7 Home Premium -64 bit

Royal Games has tournaments where you have three or four chances to improve your score, then you're rated by your top score. For the last month, when I play a tournament for the first time, at the end of the game it says I have used all my chances to improve my score. I have cleared my cache, re-installed Adobe Flash. I do not have that problem when I use Microsoft Edge. I cannot play at all using Chrome because it keeps telling me to install Adobe Flash, which, as I said, is already installed. Is the problem with Firefox or with Royal Games? I don't know what else to do.

If you are asked to debug a program by someone in an email and get a notice that an incoming request was detected from Client endpoint 127.0.0.1:65323 server endpoint 127.0.0.1:6080, is that from your own system or from someone on the net.? There is a warning the browser could be taken in control by remote client. Is the person connecting to one of the ports and using the other to access your pc. Or is it all on your own network?

I'm currently using version 56.0, 32-bit. Back when Firefox announced the "All New Look", I was nervous, but knew that Firefox had always been there over the years. Surely they wouldn't screw up a good thing.

Well, you did! I upgraded Firefox back then. I had been current with updates before that time. The upgrade wiped out all of my info and did a fresh install. If THAT'S not bad enough, I couldn't find any way to get the look/feel of the old Firefox back again.

We have VERY slow internet here, and we're also running Windows 7. I WILL NOT UPGRADE TO WINDOWS 10!! Before that happens, I'll switch over to some version of Linux - which I've been putting off for a long time. If I have to change the way Firefox looks and works, then I might as well make that change. But before I do, I need to know if there's any way to keep the updated Firefox looking/working like the older version on a Windows 7 PC??
