Description of problem:
I use htmlview everywhere so that the correct browser is launched
every time. I use Mozilla firebird.
Firebird, doesn't like being loaded more than once - it asks me to
select a profile. I can't select the same profile as another running
version of firebird.
To get around this, I point htmlview at htmlview-cheat, which does this:
# Load url in new tab
$FB -remote 'openURL('$@', new-tab)' || $FB $URL &
This works perfectly, apart from when I click the icon that links to
htmlview in the panel.
When I do this, a new tab opens (as it should), and another icon
appears telling me "Starting web browser".
This shouldn't happen.
It seems that the launch icons on the panel cannot handle applications
that are already running.
Does this happen with FC 1 also?
This is a bug with htmlview itself. It has StartupWMClass=Mozilla in
the .desktop file.
You shouldn't use StartupWMClass unless you're guaranteed a newly
mapped window with that wmclass every time the launcher is clicked. See:
for more details
htmlview is now deprecated. Closing.
