Can't start more then 1 PM from icon

Post by binkino » 2020-03-22, 11:25

What works with other "portables" doesn't work with PM.

You have an icon to start the "portable" and you get this message:
Pale Moon is already running, but is not responding. The old Pale Moon process must be closed to open a new window.
While Firefox and all other do start a new program window

Is there a trick?


Thanks and wish all best health in this time!

You have an icon
What does the icon point to?
(It should be pointing to, Palemoon-Portable.exe.)
Can't start more then 1 PM from icon
Are you saying multiple, simultaneous, individual instances of PM portable or do you meanan instance of PM, running regularly, & an instance of PM running portable?
What works with other "portables"
What do the others icons point to?

Hi,

yes the icon/link/Shortcut directs direkt to the Palemoon-Portable.exe

starting the Palemoon-Portable.exe again for a new windows.
That works with other .portable programs like firefox and other, also pointing to the .portable.exe (like FirefoxPortable.exe)

No, you can't.

Stay safe!
