Version 6.6 120.8 KiB Works with Firefox 45.0 - 48.0a1, SeaMonkey 2.40 - 2.40.*, Thunderbird 38.0 - 48.0a1

This version fixes a bunch of bugs and fixes a long-standing problem - communicating with a second instance of Firefox. If you have Open With 6.6 installed in multiple running profiles, they will now talk to each other instead of trying to start a new operating system process, so you should no longer see the "Firefox is already running" message.

I'm also trialling a new donations page, instead of the addons.mozilla.org one. You'll now be able to give using a currency of your choice - AUD, CAD, EUR, GBP, JPY, NZD and USD at the moment.
