Try something like; seamonkey &
OK, I did. It didn't work.
Given the bugzilla reports I found, I don't think my distro is part of the problem, but I am
running Slackware. Maybe other distros don't have that problem. And, as another test, I clicked on the "Mozilla Web Browser" icon in my XFCE launcher tray. Same problem. (XFCE doesn't have a default workaround, either.)
The bugzilla heart of the issue is that when one launches "mozilla" or "seamonkey", one is not launching a browser window. One is starting the suite. The hack fix they offered actually limits all subsequent openings to just the browser window only.
But, it doesn't work now, and I'm looking for a more official work around from the community than my hack I did a couple years ago.
Certainly I'm not the only one with this issue!?!?!
