email links do NOT open if Firefox more than one profile

Using OpenSUSE 12.2. If I have more than one profile for Firefox, say Profile1="default", and Profile2="mywife" then links in Thunderbird won't open in Firefox 18 or 19 when Firefox is Default Browser. However if I erase one of the profiles (any one of them) then Firefox starts behaving normally. Other browsers, Chromium or Chrome do handle thunderbird links appropiately. I have seen that many people seem to have a similar problem. I am writing this hoping it could help developers to eliminate the bug.

Make sure that you aren't using the -no-remote command line switch to start Firefox as that may prevent opening a link from an external program.

Re: email links do NOT open if Firefox more than one profile

Thank you very much, cor-el, but no, my command-line looks this simple: "firefox -P default" or "firefox -P AnaMaria" (that's my wife's). In past times when I clicked on a link in Thunderbird (using 2 firefox profiles) firefox ProfileManager window would pop up. But now it doesn't appear any more. Firefox just starts with one of the profiles. Some times it starts with a completely new profile. It is baffling!...
