I get a strange problem. If I have thunderbird open and firefox is not, when I try to start firefox I get "Failed to send command." but if I start firefox before I start thunderbird, all is well.
Once the problem starts it won't stop until I restart xfce4. Anybody have any idea why this is happening?
I believe this bug has been reported, but it is a bug in thunderbird/firefox and is duplicable on window managers other than XFCE4. Are you using the latest versions? I was hoping it might be fixed in thunderbird 0.6.
Thanks for the info.. Too bad.
my firefox and thundrebird are upto date.
that problem is fixed with the newer firefox code. I tried using the nightly build of firefox and the issue wasn't present. Hopefully there will be new source package released soon for firefox.
afaik it was a Problem in the way how arch compiled firefox...with any firefox version other than the arch one it worked... just use the search engine in the forum an you'll find a package using the firefox-binary, which works flawlessly.
It's not a "compiled" bug in thunderbird, neither in "firefox", the problem
is in the script "/usr/bin/mozilla-firefox" which is included in "mozilla-firefox" package.
Just make it look like "/usr/bin/mozilla-thunderbird" and everything will work fine.
With night builds you do not use that script, that's why you don't have problems.
It's a reported bug, so you do not need to report it again.
One thing that I did was to launch both with the actual script of:
all is well (for me anywhoo)
