Everything went smooth and I even installed Flash but now my question is that when I have one session of Firefox open , I can minimize that browser page and open up an email that has a new URL in it - I select the URL & expect to see a new Firefox browser page open with the requested URL opening.
What I get instead is a window from Firefox that asks me what profile I want to select - all I see is a default profile and I am unable to select that to open a 2nd page of firefox. I don't know if Firefox is getting confused that now the email application is calling for it or what?
I can just again click the Firefox shortcut on my desktop as many times as I want to open multiple sessions of pages like IE but only when I use the email link from my email do I get this.
I made sure that in GNOME my prefered application browser is Firefox.
Can someone help me fix this issue - is it a known bug with Linux? I can't find anything so I came here for some help

This script should remedy the problem:
#!/bin/sh export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=~/firefox # get URL to load url=$1; [ -z $url ] && url=about:blank # try xremote first ~/firefox/mozilla-xremote-client openURL\($url,new-tab\) && exit 0 # if xremote failed, then launch the browser exec /usr/bin/artsdsp ~/firefox/firefox $url"I don't know what I'm running from
And I don't know where I'm running to
There's something deep and strange inside of me I see"
