Firefox starts in Session Restore from panel or application menu

I use Firefox as my default browser. Whenever I start it by clicking on Web Browser from Panel at the bottom or from Application Menu, Firefox starts as if it was crashed the last time around. If I start from Internet > Firefox or from command line it starts just fine.

I'm using Slackware 14.1, Firefox 45.9.0esr, Xfce 4.10.

Hello and welcome.

What are the contents of your /usr/share/xfce4/helpers/firefox.desktop file?

What version of exo are you using:

exo-open -V | head -1

Re: Firefox starts in Session Restore from panel or application menu

In the /usr/share/xfce4/helpers/firefox.desktop file, change the last two lines to read:

X-XFCE-Commands=%B;
X-XFCE-CommandsWithParameter=%B "%s";

...and try again.

Re: Firefox starts in Session Restore from panel or application menu

Great, that did the trick. Much obliged ToZ.
To be clear, -remote "openURL(about:blank,new-window)" was causing the crash?

Yes. It has been fixed in later versions of exo.
