I don't grok KDE, and now it's biting me in the bum.
If I don't have any instances of firefox on my desktop
then invoking firefox on the command line starts one.
If perchance I do this on an X enabled SSH connection,
then it starts on that host and displays on my desktop.
That's all well, good and sometimes very useful.
It means I can SSH into a dual homed cluster master node,
and see web servers local to the cluster's private network.
BUT, if I have an instance of firefox already, local or remote,
any attempt to start another, anywhere,
will be referred to the existing instance.
HOW DOES IT DO THAT?
And more important, is there anything I can do to stop it?
Well theme my emoticons "Disgusted".
