I am trying to use Firebird as a preview browser in the Bluefish webpage editor. I have tried various commands but nothing seems to work. Either Firebird tries to open in a new profile (bug 177996) or I get the message "Error launching browser window, Type Error= Components.classes ['@mozilla.org/appshell/compnent/browser/instance;1'] has no properties. The latter happens, for instance, when I try to use the command: mypath/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird -remote 'openURL(%s, new-tab)'.

The following command in Bluefish worked (yesterday) :

/opt/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird -remote "openURL(%s,new-tab)" || /opt/MozillaFirebird/MozillaFirebird %s&

That was after installing the Firebird extension: "Tabbrowser extensions", with the extension's option "Use multiple browsers only when I open them".

Now, alas, this has stopped working unless I am opening Firebird for the first time. Subsequent attempts to preview a page summon up the Profile Manager, which is of course a dead end.

I am using KDE 3.14, Firebird 0.7, Bluefish 0.9 under Mandrake Linux 9.1.

You can lanch Forefox 1.0 from Bluefish 0.12 using

firefox -remote 'openURL(%s, new-tab)' || firefox %s&
