Firefox 36.0 doesn't have -remote option, which is used in the function browse-url-firefox for system-type gnu/linux by default. How to conveniently bypass this issue?


1 Answer 1


The current emacs-24 development branch of Emacs was just updated with the corresponding change.

You can clone and build from it, try applying the same change to your local installation, or wait for Emacs 24.5 to come out, which shouldn't take long now.
