I already have a number of different profiles, so I tried to start Firefox by using these incantations: $ firefox -ProfileManager $ firefox -ProfileManager -no-remote $ firefox -ProfileManager --no-remote But whatever I tried, it would not come up with the profile manager but instead load the home page. Also, there was no individual session, but it was just another window of the already-running session. What gives? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. I searched mozilla.org and mozilla.com as well as the Firefox installation and its online help for how to run a separate session to no avail. NB: Every web developer (at least!) needs this functionality.
-no-remote wasn't supported until 2.0, for 1.5.0.x you need to |set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1| first.
