On Mac OS X, how can I create a new Firefox window in a specific profile from command line?
I have tried
/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P <profile> -no-remote &
/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -P <profile> -no-remote -new-window <URL> &
but I always get the error: "A copy of Firefox is already open. Only one copy of Firefox can be open at a time."

That is not possible. You can't open a new tab or new window in a specific instance (profile) via the command line. You can only open a new window with a separate profile via the -no-remote command line switch.
I found this possible answer using AppleScript. Is it viable?
