This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Using galeon version 1.2.5

In a buffer being in text-mode, I placed point on


then called

  M-x browse-url-galeon

This works fine. Then I issue:

  M-x browse-url-new-window-flag RET t RET

place point on


and call again

  M-x browse-url-galeon

This last file gets shown in the same window as the first one, but
should be shown in a new window.

In defun browse-url-galeon in browse-url-el, I read this:

         (process (apply 'start-process
                         (concat "galeon " url) nil
                          (if new-window '("-w" "--noraise"))
                          (list "-x" url)))))

I guess the option -x (for 'show in same window') shadows the earlier
option -w (for 'show in new window').  Also --noraise is not mentioned in 
the manual of Galeon version 1.2.5

Here is a patch that I found to correct the problem:

*** browse-url.el.orig  Sat Aug  9 19:58:27 2003
--- browse-url.el       Sat Aug  9 19:58:27 2003
*** 901,908 ****
!                           (if new-window '("-w" "--noraise"))
!                           (list "-x" url)))))
      (set-process-sentinel process
                          `(lambda (process change)
                             (browse-url-galeon-sentinel process ,url)))))
--- 904,912 ----
!                         ;; -w does not pass through with -x
!                         (list (if new-window "-w" "-x")
!                               url)))))
      (set-process-sentinel process
                          `(lambda (process change)
                             (browse-url-galeon-sentinel process ,url)))))

Hope it helps.

Additional remark:

Galeon now can open a file in a new Tab. Emacs does not yet provide a
flag for this useful option.  I already mentioned this in an earlier
bug-report on `browse-url-mozilla' in browse-url.el.  Should there be a
new flag, or would it be better to leave it to the user to specify the
desired behaviour in `browse-url-galeon-arguments' and
`browse-url-mozilla-arguments' altogether?
