User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; fr-FR; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; fr-FR; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624 -p "profileName" works as documented online if profileName contains no international characters. (i.e. upper or lower-case P, quotes optional if no space in profileName.) If profileName contains an international character (e.g. é as in André) one is asked to select a profile Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Have 2 profiles defined, one without any international characters, the other with at least one international character (such as "é"). 2. In testing, test all variations of -P "profileName" -- i.e.: upper or lower-case P, followed by a space, profileName matching case exactly of defined profile, quotes optional if no space in profileName. Test by adding parameters to a shortcut link to Mozilla. Could alternately enter the command directly under "run". 3. Test profileName not containing any international characters. 4. Test profileName containing at least one international character. Actual Results: If profileName contains no international characters, profile is automatically selected. If profileName contains any international characters, one is asked to select a profile. Expected Results: Automatically select the profile, even if profileName contains an international character. Behavior not tested with only one profile defined. (Not useful in that case.) This option worked correctly under Mozilla 1.3.1 (before recent upgrade). Each profileName tested matched exactly (in case and accents) the profileName defined under the profile manager. Bug rated as normal rather than minor because in some cases one wishes to hide the profile selection from an occational user of one's computer (privacy/security).
