For some mysterious reason, when I open a link in firefox, a new firefox instance opens. Also note instead of the content of the link, my home-page shows up.
Instead I would like a new tab to open in my running instance and actually show the content of the link.
but I would like to make it work for firefox?
I am running Fedora Linux 21, with emacs 24.4.1.
1) If I set my browser to chrome/eww, then it works:
(setq browse-url-browser-function 'browse-url-generic browse-url-generic-program "google-chrome")
2) I tried loading my emacs with
emacs -q and dissabling all firefox plugins, but the result was the same.
As per post below, I rebuild emacs from sources and that solved the problem.
In case anyone reads this, I wrote a blog entry on how to rebuild emacs on fedora: https://coffeeorientedprogramming.wordpress.com/2015/03/11/how-to-compilebuild-emacs-from-scratch-on-fedora/
