For quite a while, I have used Firefox on my Windows 7 laptop and a single profile. When I open up Outlook or Pidgin or whatever, and I click on a link, that link opens up as a new tab in my Firefox window. So far so good.
Now I have two profiles, one for regular day-to-day browsing, and one for work-related browsing with specific settings and proxies and whatnot. I left the original profile with the name "default". Now, however, when I click on a link in Outlook or Pidgin or whatever, I get the Profile Manager popup, asking me which profile I would like to use. I select "default", and I get an error 'Firefox cannot use the profile "default" because it is in use.'
Clearly I have screwed something up that prevents Firefox from just opening a new tab in my default profile like it always used to. But I can't figure out what that is. Does anybody have a pointer?
This is my entire profiles.ini file
