Description

For reason I would like to leave unspecified for now I would like to run Tor Browser's firefox without Vidalia. To do so, I execute this scripts from a bash script file:

cd ~/tor-browser_en-US
exec ./App/Firefox/firefox -profile ./Data/profile "$@"

This works fine so far, although the first invocation ignores the command line arguments. That is, if there is no firefox instance so far, and I run my script like this

firefox.sh google.com

google.com is not opened. I just get the regular start page. Further invocations of

firefox.sh google.com

do open google.com just right, though.

ping? this is an incredibly annoying bug.

Sounds like a patch would help catch Mike's attention.

Unfortunately I do not know how to code JavaScript and Firefox Addons. I suspect the bug roots somewhere in

https://gitweb.torproject.org/torbutton.git/blob/HEAD:/src/chrome/content/torbutton.js

but I am not sure.

I am pretty sure this one is easy to fix for the one who coded this magic ;)

This is an unsupported way of launching TBB. The situation may accidentally improve after #6009 is deployed. Calling this a dup until then. Reopen if you have a patch.
