[2850] Two windows open when clicking on external links

Postby Fremax » Sat Aug 01, 2015 10:03 am

It started a few days ago.
When I click on a link in an external program (mail, word, pdf, etc...) and firefox is not running, 2 windows open.
i.e. the link that I actually want to open and an extra window with my startup page.
I did some troubleshooting, and it is the ABP add-on which causes the problem.
Without it, no problem. I have been using ABP for a long time and never experienced any trouble before.

System:
OSX 10.8.5, Firefox 39.0, ABP 2.6.10

Thanx for helping

Same thing for me. To reiterate, 2 windows of Firefox open when I click on an external link, and Firefox is not running. One is the link, and one is my homepage.

iOS 10.9.5
Firefox v40
Don't know version of AdBlock, as I deleted it to solve the problem, but it was the current version as of 20 Jul 2015
Removing AdBlock and the problem goes away. Re-install it, and the problem returns.

Thanks

it's useless "the same the same"
as you see above there is an issue on the bug tracker, the devs already saw it, so, just wait for a fix

Any link from AppleMail will open SeaMonkey (default browser). Two windows launch from clicking on the link. A blank window, then the window that displays the requested link on top of it. Happens every time. If I disable AdBlock in Add-Ons Manager, the problem immediately disappears. I've tried a bit unclicking some Ad Block display options, such as show in tool bar, the problem still persists. Mac 10.10.4, Desktop Mac Pro. SeaMonkey 2.3.8. AdBlock 2.6.1.1. I've turned off and on my other add-ons, one at a time: DOM inspector, FlagFox, NoScript. They did not affect problem behavior. I can stop the issue or start the issue at any time, simply by enabling or disabling AdBlock.

External links open two Firefox windows/tabs

Postby jshrek » Fri Feb 12, 2016 9:57 pm

When Firefox is completely closed, and I click in an external link (say in a mail program like Thunderbird), Firefox will startup and open two tabs instead of one.

When I open Firefox from the Dock, it only opens one window.

Thanks

I am using OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 with Firefox 43.0.2 and AdBlock Plus 2.7.1

FireFox 45.0.1
OS X 10.10.5
ADBlock 2.7.2

Same situation. Sorry for repeating, but quite not understand was it resolved or not. Happening only if Firefox was not opened before click.
