Details

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Launch Firefox using the -profile "C:\<path to my profile dir>" command line
  2. Open a URL link from an external program or a shortcut associated with Firefox

Actual results:

Firefox will now open the link in the default profile and if you have a custom profile loaded through the commandline it will be ignored. All shortcuts and saved settings will use the default profile instead of the one you already have opened.

Expected results:

Link opened in the currently loaded profile using the command line -profile "C:\<path to my profile dir>"
This occurs since the 67 update both on regular Firefox and Firefox developer.
