Just ran into a strange problem. I had installed eCS 1.2 Refresh into a
Virtual Machine on a Mac Pro, during which I'd included installing Mozilla
(but not Netscape) to get some of the directories in place. Mozilla runs
But I really want Firefox 220.127.116.11 instead of Mozilla. When I invoke Fire-
fox I get the message:
'Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new
window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart
Using RUN! in the form firefox!L.EXE produces the same message. But
Mozilla is NOT running. It shows up in neither the window list, nor when
I run TOP. And it's not even running on the Mac, so there shouldn't be
any interference from the network.
Any ideas how to get past this obstacle? Thanks.

I occasionally get the same message with Firefox v18.104.22.168 under Linux.
Apparently it isn't peculiar to the OS/2 port.
remember back a while ago when we OS/2 users had the option to load the
dlls at boot time. It seems that this ideal has become a part of
Mozilla. I saw this a couple days ago when I updated SeaMonkey on XP as
an install option. Since Windows loads SeaMonkey much slower than OS/2,
I could understand someone needing it. Bet that is what going on your
machines. And no, I don't know the setting or procedure that disables
it, unless it is a item in the startup folder that you can delete.
Now there's an interesting thought! Will have to ask about this on the
Mozilla forum. Thanks, Bill.
Some Googling showed there is a 'preloader' that can be downloaded and
installed separately, but is intended for Windows. That dates from 2-3
years ago, so maybe now it's all incorporated into the code. Still, it's
not clear to me what config.sys entry would cause that part of the code
to be loaded. There's nothing related to Mozilla in either the Startup
folder nor startup.cmd. I'm going to try uninstalling Mozilla (removing
the whole subdirectory) and see if that helps.
