Description

5 years ago
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.6; rv:16.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/16.0
Build ID: 20121024073032

Steps to reproduce:

Allowed T-bird to auto-update to Ver. 16.  Tried to open T-bird in manner to which I was accustomed - with built-in Profile Manager "asking at startup."  ("Don't ask..." had always been un-checked.)


Actual results:

Built-in Profile Manager did not come up.  T-bird went straight to the last profile I had accessed.  I tried opening T-bird with the Mac Console using the -profilemanager switch (& trying all sorts of capitalization/abbreviation possibilities) and nothing worked.


Expected results:

Built-in Profile Manager should have come up when I opened T-bird.  HOWEVER, note that I was asked to submit this bug report.  Once I upgraded my MacOS to Snow Leopard from Leopard, the problem went away.  So I'm not sure you need to consider this a serious bug.  It just means that T-bird's built-in Profile Manager functionality is no longer supported for Leopard.

I did not find any similar reports of this.
Copying Jay in case he's seen reports.
