fresh install of fedora 9 x86_64. Firefox is the default browser. Every

firefox profile chooser window, asking "what profile do you want to
use?". Obviously, selecting the current profile does not work because
"it is currently in use" o_O

"Copy-paste" the links into firefox's address bar works, but having to
do that every time is extremely annoying.

yes, I've seen such things before, and most of us had to write our own
firefox-remote script to enjoy the flawless work, but it was like... in
2004!!! I thought this thing has been solved for some time now.

googling brings nothing -- apparently I'm the only one with this
problem under F9.

Any suggestions?

Quit all open copies of firefox

delete the file...

~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles/$SOME_SALTED_HASH/.parentlock

This is the file that makes it think your profile ^^^^^^ is in use.

Thanks, problem solved.

which one? Was Craig referring to your problem or mine, because the threads seem to be messed up?

I'm running F9 x86_64 and F8 i386 on x86_64 hardware, should this matter.
