On Mac only, if you use -app application.ini to specify a new XUL based application, and then use the profile manager, starting your application directly from the profile manager starts Firefox instead of your app.

It works if you specify -p profilename from the command line, and it works on Windows.

It only doesn't work on Mac when using the Profile Manager to start your app.

I realize XUL is being deprecated, but this being used to create XUL based single site apps that still need to use plugins, so this is important right now.

I'm putting together a simple test case.
