A couple of month ago, Jing published a script to run concurrent
instances of Mozilla/Firefox. I am running Firefox 0.9.1 on Sarge and
this script did not work well: it was able to start a new instance of
Firefox only if one was already running.
I found that it was because the mozilla-xremote-client version shipped
with Firefox returned 0 to a successful ping (meaning if a client was
I tried to modified Jing's script to reflect that but, because I do not
know Bash very well, my new script is not nice.
Actually, in the script, the variable REMOTE is the program to be used
for the ping. However, with this version of mozilla-xremote-client, you
also have to specify what to ping with the option -a
(mozilla-xremote-client -a firefox "ping()") knowing that you can ping
Firefox, Thunderbird, Mozilla, or any.
My problem is that I cannot put "mozilla-xremote-client -a firefox" in
the REMOTE variable otherwise, when executed (`$REMOTE "ping()"`).
Therefore, the only solution I found was to hard code the program with
its path and options. Not good at all.
