User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040913 http://www.mozilla.org/docs/command-line-args.html says to use "-p profile" to launch mozilla with a different profile. However, the mozilla shell script grabs -p and tries to run mozilla-bin.pure, which doesn't exist. mozilla --help says to use "-P profile" to do the same thing. I suppose that this is more authoritative. This uppercase P works as expected. At the very least, there is a bug in the CLI web page above. But when I comment out these lines from the mozilla shell script: -p | -pure) MOZILLA_BIN="mozilla-bin.pure" shift ;; it passes a lowercase "-p profile" to mozilla-bin and it uses that profile. Essentially, this means that the binary will accept either -p or -P. Odd. I don't know what mozilla-bin.pure is, but should the tarball be sent out with mozilla-bin.pure symlinked to mozilla-bin? Of course, this wouldn't have fixed by problem because mozilla-bin would be executed with "myprofile" as one of the arguments since the script only consumed the -p and not the next word. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. mozilla -p myprofile -remote "openurl(http://cnn.com/,new-window)" Actual Results: run-mozilla.sh: Cannot execute /home/pdonahue/tools/Linux/mozilla/mozilla-bin.pure.
the web page is wrong
