When running multiple profiles simultaneously firefox -P profile opens the wrong profile on Windows.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a profile: firefox -P profile1 -no-remote
2. Open another profile: firefox -P profile2 -no-remote
3. Open a window: firefox -P profile2
Actual Results:  
The first step opens the first window of profile1
The second step opens the first window of profile2
The third step opens a window of profile1

Expected Results:  
The first step opens the first window of profile1
The second step opens the first window of profile2
The third step should have opened a window of profile2
This is not intended to work. Windows remoting doesn't store profile names and I don't want to support the complexity for that.
