Firefox starts without extensions when triggered from third-party application (Windows 10 64-bit). How come?

First off, I must say that this behavior happens with both the installed and portable versions of the latest stable 32-bit Firefox: when I click on a link in, say, Thunderbird, and Firefox is not running yet, it opens a new window with no addons, as though from a new, clean profile, instead of resuming where I left off when I last closed it, as I set it to do.
I can't for the life of me understands why that happens. It seems as though I have two different versions of Firefox (I'm certain that's not the case...), one that I start manually when I need to browse the Web, and another one that would be triggered by third-party apps, the two not sharing the same profile, of which I'm sure I have created only one.
I thought it could have to do with the fact that Portable Firefox comes in a 32-bit/64-bit package, with the third-party app starting the launcher instead of the 32-bit executable, but I've now deleted the 64-bit folder in Portable Firefox altogether, so that can't be it.
Where does that strange behavior come from?!
