I have setup multiple profiles but Firefox shows the profile manager only on the first run. Subsequent starts ALWAYS load the current profile
I have setup multiple profiles but Firefox shows the profile manager only on the first run. Subsequent starts ALWAYS load the current profile. I tried starting Firefox with -p switch but it did not make any difference. As long as there is one instance of Firefox, the profile manager never starts and Firefox is always loads a new instance of the current profile. So, basically the multiple profiles feature is NOT working since I can only start ONE profile at a time!
I am running Firefox ver 43.0.4 on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Thank you for your reply and help. The -no-remote switch did the trick
Now I am curious to why I need this switch? My old machine (which runs Win7 32-bit) worked fine without this switch. Is it a matter of Win7 64-bit vs 32-bit?
You will always open a new window in the Firefox instance if one is already open because the startup code is checking if there is already a Firefox instance running. This even applies to different Firefox versions. To prevent that you need to use the -no-remote switch to be able to start another Firefox instance with its own profile.
Note that you can't open a link from an external application in a Firefox instance that is started with -no-remote.
