Description Ondrej Svetlik 2005-01-13 12:16:30 UTC
Description of problem:
Script /usr/bin/firefox doesn't open given link in a new tab (set
correctly in preferences) but in a new window. Script
/usr/lib/firefox-1.0/firefox works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run firefox
2. set it to load new links opened by an application to a new tab
3. from shell run firefox again with some link

Actual results:
Firefox opens a new window with given link.

Expected results:
New tab should be opened in the old window.

Additional info:
To solve this issue try:
rm -f /usr/bin/firefox
ln -s /usr/lib/firefox-1.0/firefox /usr/bin/firefox

This works for me.

Comment 1 Thilo Pfennig 2005-02-19 12:52:46 UTC
Does not work for me.

Steps to reproduce:

 1. Open in GNOME "gnome-default-application-properties"
 2. change browser to "firefox -remote 'openURL(%s,new-tab)'
 3. Maybe click a link in evolution

Actual results:

no windows is opening and no tab

Expected results:

new tab is opening

Additional info:
Works via command line. Is this a GNOME problem?
