Session lost after using palemoon --ProfileManager

Unread post by tooshorttoolong » 2017-11-27, 13:57

First I have to say I’m using Pale Moon 27.6.1 self-built on Gentoo 64 bit with gcc 6.4 (or 5.4, I don’t remember, as gcc was updated recently). I haven’t tried the following with the official build.

Yesterday I had PM already running and I launched PM from a terminal using "palemoon --ProfileManager". It didn’t open any profile manager, but it did open a new PM window with the "palemoon.start.me/fr" URL. (That’s the first problem I guess, but not why I’m writing this post.)

I closed that window and went on with my life. My PM is configured to remember the open tabs.

When I opened PM today it had lost all my open tabs, and instead opened with a single tab on "palemoon.start.me/fr". Checking the profiles directory there still was only a single profile. Thankfully I had a backup from yesterday so I think I was able to restore all my open tabs.

EDIT: I tried with the official build. I can reproduce the first issue (palemoon --ProfileManager does not open the profile manager when PM is already open, but instead opens a new windows on "palemoon.start.me/fr"), but not the second one.
It’s a bit confusing as sometimes PM remembers all the previously open windows with their tabs, sometimes not.

Use:

Code: Select all

palemoon --no-remote --ProfileManager
or

Code: Select all

palemoon --no-remote --p
when PM is already open.

Thanks. Then maybe "--no-remote" should be implied when "--ProfileManager" is used.
