Bug Description

Ephy is configured to be the default browser on my system. An Ephy instance was running and loading a few pages. I clicked on a link in Thunderbird while this was happening and (I presume) the instance of Ephy that was spawned, rather than forwarding the page load request to the existing instance, crashed instead.

As I mentioned in Bug #1247301, this happens when there is an Ephy instance running and loading a page, then another instance is spawned (as a result of clicking on a link in another application). The new instance crashes, not the previously existing instance.
