-Profilemanager doesn't open profilemanager; opens another firefox window
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 This is similar to bug 297470, but I'm running on linux. I'm running Firefox 1.5RC3. In 1.0.7, running `firefox -Profilemanager` or even `firefox -P foo` would open a new firefox session with the selected profile. Now, it only opens a new firefox window with the current profile. The only way the -P or -Profilemanager works is when there is no firefox session running. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. start firefox with default profile 2. type "firefox -Profilemanager" in commandline. 3. Actual Results: New firefox window under current profile comes up. Expected Results: Profilemanager or firefox with selected profile comes up.
This is invalid, since this change is intentional (see bug 297618). If you don't want auto-remoting, use the MOZ_NO_REMOTE environment variable. See http://www.mozilla.org/build/win32-debugging-faq.html#twomoz .
