I'm currently using firefox-developer-edition 59.0b8-1 and firefox 58.0.2-1. I'm unable to use them at the same time. I checked htop (process viewer) it says it's running firefox when I'm running either firefox-developer-edition or firefox. I tried to check if other people have same problem but none do. I have the option enabled on firefox-dev which allows them to run them at the time.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
firefox-developer-edition 59.0b8-1

* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
Try to run these applications at same time. I get an error about "Firefox is already running, but is not responding..."
This task depends upon

Are you running them on the same profile? Open them with the param «-P»

Also try with the param «--new-instance» to see if that's related

I forgot this was still open. This was long time ago so I'm going to request closure on this. Thanks.
