X11 Firefox not opening external links, "already running but not responding".
I am really struggling to find any info on my issue.
When I try to open any external links (for instance, from Telegram), I get the infamous error message regarding "running not responding" FF. I've read tons of answers on this but none help.
1) I'm NOT on Wayland. In fact, I am on Fedora 34 Server + X11 + lightdm + bspwm. 2) There is no "no-remote" option in my fedora startup script, nor in my ENV. about:support + search by word "remote" did not find me anything looking relevant. 3) Obviously, my FF is responding quite well. 4) Opening links from terminal emulator with --new-tab does not work either. 5) Adding "MOZ_DBUS_REMOTE" did not resolve the situation.
FF v.95.0.2, from @System Fedora repo.
Please, guide me on getting more info to resolve this issue. Or maybe somebody is familiar with it?
Thanks a whole lot in advance!

Oh, wow, been a week and not even a request for more info. I guess I have to install some other browser after all, it's been nice using FF for 8 years.
Sorry. Sometimes we get so many postings that one falls thru the cracks.
Make sure you close the browser using; Windows: Menu > File > Exit Mac: Menu > Firefox > Quit Firefox Linux: Menu > File > Quit
Some users have reported issues when closing the browser using the X upper-right of the window.
