I have 3-4 different profiles running, one for work, one for using a proxy, one for developing (which turns off certain security features as I ONLY run my own code on it). I could have sworn that back in the old days when I unchecked the "Use the selected ... without asking ..." button that every time I started firefox by opening a link or clicking the icon for firefox that it would pop up the "Choose User Profile" dialog. Now it just seems to have decided to push it to some arbitrary profile, which for now seems to be my work one. I don't think it's stable and seems to be the first profile that I run when I start starting up firefox profiles. This is a problem if it randomly decides to start in my insecure for dev only profile.
What I did:
- Created a few profiles
- Started up multiple profiles at once w/ firefox -P
- Unchecked the "Use the selected ...." checkbox
What I expected:
- Bring up profile chooser dialog every time firefox starts
What's actually happening:
- It's picking a profile to start (not clear how it's choosing) and just starting with no dialog.
I'm running 68.8.0 esr 64-bit. Is this the new expected behavior, am I doing something wrong, or do I need to file a bug?
