Need option key modifier to launch profile manager on Mac OS builds
Since we no longer ship the profile manager and profile migration ``argument files'' with Mach-O builds we need a way to let users launch the profile manager at startup. Based on a discussion with Simon and JJ one recommended method is to check for the option key modifier being held down at application launch time. For netscape employees, see also bugscape 22266.
Thanks to Simon for the patch.

I'd like to get this in for 1.3 if possible. As soon as it's been fully reviewed please request driver approval to land in 1.3. Thanks!

Alt + doubleclick doesn't work. The only thing, which works, is to do Alt + Click, if the icon is in the dock _and_ Mozilla is not running yet. If you do Alt + Click, when Mozilla is running, Mozilla is hidden (which is the usual Mac OS behaviour). This is very obfuscating --> I think this bug should be reopened.
> Alt + doubleclick doesn't work. WFM with Mozilla 2004041708 on Mac OS 10.2.8. If you release the Alt key too early it won't work.
It definitely doesn't work here (Mozilla 1.7b, OS X 10.3.3). When I do Alt + DblClick on the Mozilla Icon in the Finder Window, normal Mozilla starts up _and_ the Finder Window disappeares. I dought that this different behaviour is due to the fact that we have different Mozilla versions, since the checkin for this bug was before 1.7b. Instead, there might have been a change from 10.2.x to 10.3.x which causes the OS to catch the Alt + DblClick-Event?
Ok - when pressing Option longer than the doubleclick, Profile Manager opens. This is not obvious But at the same time, the finder window disappears due to Option+DblClick. I think this will obfuscate many users and it's not a good solution.
