Question Mozilla and Firefox (on same machine, problems launching both at same time)


I have both Mozilla and Firefox installed and running.

If I launch Mozilla first, then FireFox, everything is cool.

If I launch FireFox, then type >mozilla at the command line, it launches another instance of FireFox.

I have also tried the gui's and I get the same results.

The Mozilla came with the Fedora Core 2 and i grabbed FireFox from the Mozilla site.

I checked the Mozilla site quickly but could not turn up an answer.

Thank you in advance for the help.

Jim

why do you want to run both of them at once? Is there something one has that the other doesn't? AFAIK you can get thunderbird for email and there is a built in IRC client for firefox as well as mozilla.. but I'm sure you have some other reason perhaps or is it just because you are curious?

On the website or in the README they tell you that you will run into problems if you run both of them at the same time.
