the -profilemanager is no more reckognized in firefox 1.5, it's now -ProfileManager.

The lines :
On Linux or Mac, start Firefox with the the -profilemanager switch, e.g. ./firefox -profilemanager (this assumes that you're in the firefox directory).

should be :
On Linux or Mac, start Firefox with the the -ProfileManager switch, e.g. ./firefox -ProfileManager (this assumes that you're in the firefox directory).

patch to the profilemanager page in mozilla/firefox support site

this is the changes i made to the page so that the profilemanager option could work on linux and mac.
-profilemanager still works fine, in fact the source seems to use case insensitive matching for this flag.

Hi !

I am using :

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.0.5) Gecko/20060731 Ubuntu/dapper-security Firefox/1.5.0.5

And the -profilemanager option IS NOT reckognized. -ProfileManager is. I'v just checked it twice.

Any idea ?

Well, http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla1.8.0/source/toolkit/xre/nsAppRunner.cpp#1458 and http://lxr.mozilla.org/mozilla1.8.0/source/toolkit/xre/nsAppRunner.cpp#1577 both show the argument is case-insensitive, so it could be that Ubuntu has modified something in its Firefox package.
