 +===== Firefox won't open: another instance is running or similar errors =====
 +
 +This happens in two cases:
 +
 +== 1. You have firefox open in workstation A, and you try yo open it in workstation B ==
 +
 +**Solution**:​ It's advisable to close it in workstation A first. Each instance of firefox will write in the
 +same profile folder that might cause problems. To save your work you might want to use the [[https://​addons.mozilla.org/​en-US/​firefox/​addon/​session-manager/​|session-manager extension]]
 +
 +== 2. Your machine shut down abruptly or lost connection with the fileserver before firefox released the profile lock ==
 +
 +**Solution**:​ remove the profile lock using this simple one-liner. ​
 +
 +:​!:​**OBS**:​!::​ make sure you **DO NOT** have firefox already running on some other machine or you will cause severe damage to your firefox setup!!
 +
 +<code bash>​find ~/​.mozilla/​firefox/​ -iname '​.parentlock'​ -exec rm {} \;</​code>​
 +
 +And try to restart firefox again.
