When clicking on an email link, I want the firefox user profile menu to open instead of going to the last used profile. How do I make this work?

When I click on a link in Thunderbird to open a web page, and Firefox is not already open, I want to have the user profile screen presented so that I can select which profile to use for the Firefox session. Instead, it opens the last used profile. Is there a way to do this?

That is is always a problem when you are using multiple profiles and Firefox isn't running.

It might work if no profile is selected (i.e. marked as Default=1 in profiles.ini).
You can use desktop shortcut that open with a specific profile (-P "profile").
There is also a setting in the Profile Manager (Don't ask at startup).
