How can I start a second window of a second profile through the command line?

I have two profiles set up, 'default' and 'second'. If both are already running how can I start a second window of profile 'second'? firefox -p 'second'  : opens a new window of the default and, firefox -p 'second' -no-remote : tells me that firefox is already running.

I don't think that this is possible.
You need to open this second instance (Firefox profile folder) with the -no-remote command line switch and that makes it impossible to open external links via the command line or via a double-click.
You can only open a link in such an instance by dragging the link on the tab bar of that Firefox window.

Hmm that's bad news

actually I am trying to configure my webdev IDE (Netbeans) to open my 'webdev' profile each time I want to inspect my code in the browser. I guess I'll have to continue to open the second profile manually...
