Two iceweasel applications. Do they communicate?


Hya,

I am confused.

Situation:
Two debian squeeze machines. (Penguin1 and Penguin2)
On Penguin1, with X, run iceweasel, then ssh (with -X -Y) onto Penguin2, run iceweasel on Penguin2 (window in on Penguin1).

Now, on Penguin1, there are two iceweasel windows. These two have different history cache and whatever.

Now, it is time to go, so quit one of them (iceweasel on Penguin1 or Penguin2), no iceweasel windows left, all gone!

Do they communicate?

Has anybody ever seen this?

Happy Penguins!

Yes, they do communicate. In some configuration, its even worst. In my case, even if I open a new Firefox from ssh -Y, it will only open a new windows on my local one. Firefox use a singleton, a unique object/process rules them all. A new one is not created every time you run "firefox" or "iceweasel", it use the current one.

If you want separate instances use:
Code:
iceweasel -no-remote
This is documented in the man page.

Hya,

A "man" for iceweasel!? I never thought about that!

Anyway, thanks evo2 and Elv13.

Happy Penguins!
