netscape script no longer opens new windows from already running browser
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:18:47 EDT
netscape script no longer opens new windows from already running browser.
Instead, the "lock file detected? Continue?" netscape dialog comes up if
you try and run netscape when an instance of netscape is already running.
Should line 91 be "if [ -z "$MOZ_PIDS" ];" instead of skipping the '$'
character? I made the change locally and it seems to work fine now.

Oops, I can't close it like that. Fixed in 4.76-7.
Same bug subject in 4.76-7, different cause. Any reason you only try and
connect to the running browser if its called "mozilla" now?
Er, retract last comment. Sorry. Its still not working right (still triest to
run netscape a second time), but I have not yet figured out exactly why.
Oops, fixed in -9.
The general problem is that if mozilla is running, you can't
netscape -remote 'xfeDoCommand(whatever)'.

$ rpm -q -a | grep netscape
which are the versions in the March 10 rawhide:
Now running netscape again gives you a new netscape window reliably.
It just kills any old netscape-windows too... not good.
You're using KDE, right?
KDE is odd. A workaround is in the -11 pacakges.
