So nothing happens, no Profile Manager, no browser opening. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Make sure that when opening firefox.exe with parameter -profilemanager all checkboxes are disabled. 1. Close Firefox 3.x completely (no firefox.exe in Task Manager) 2. Click on a Internet URL in your mail program or open a bookmark from harddisk 3. firefox.exe is launched, but no window appears to select the profile to use for opening the link Actual Results: Nothing happens. But there is a firefox.exe instance running in Windows Task Manager which must be terminated in order to open Firefox manually. Expected Results: The Firefox Profile Manager should open and ask for the profile to start with. Afterwards the Browser window should open and the clicked URL shall be opened. Workaround: Open Firefox with your desired profile BEFORE clicking web URLs from eMails or opening a bookmark from harddisk.
