clicking the "web browser" icon in a default xfce4 setup that has been upgraded
latest wheezy (with firefox 45.3.0esr-1~deb7u1) still launches firefox as
`firefox-esr -remote openURL(about:blank,new-window)` (as shown in ps), which
not create a window, but exits without further message after a few seconds when
firefox process is already running. starting firefox like that worked fine back
with some 38 version of firefox (then iceweasel).
setting the preferred web browser from "firefox" to "debian's standard browser"
preferred applications settings launches it via x-www-browser, which is
-- so that's aviable workaround. switching back to explicit firefox again causes
the non-working startup.
