More Mozilla...


Does anyone know a way of making the internet icon open
a new window of the current mozilla instance, and NOT a
new instance (which then prompts for a new profile and gets annoying...)

--Thanks

Firefox still doesn't address the underlying issue of multiple instances, though.
This seems like it would be a fundamental thing for the program to handle, but you still need to use a workaround for multiple "firefox url.html" commands.
