Mozilla Profiles


I downloaded Mozilla 1.5beta and am very happy with it now, EXCEPT that when I open a browser, I then can't open another browser window!! It says something about I can't use that profile because it's already in use.....Is there an easy fix? Could it be that the previous version of Mozilla is still there somewhere and is causing this? How do I go about uninstalling just the OLD version? Thanks...

It works! I used to be able to just click on my Mozilla icon though and just have another window open up....Any way to configure to do that again? Thanks for the workaround though....

Maybe you should check this scrip out.

Mozilla Starter Script

About:
mss is a wrapper for Mozilla. Its main purpose is to open a new Mozilla window in an existing process rather than starting a new Mozilla process each time "mozilla" is called. It can also convert to and from command line switches and -remote commands as necessary (if supported by Mozilla).
