Firefox keeps asking me to "Choose User Profile" every time I open it

I'm running Ubuntu 16.04, and every time I start firefox, it gives me the "Choose User Profile" prompt, even with "Use the selected profile without asking on startup" selected. My about:profiles has only one profile (which is set to default), and both my profiles.ini file and installs.ini file contain only that profile. The profiles.ini file also has StartWithLastProfile=1. It's not really that big a deal, but it is annoying and any help would be appreciated.

I don't use Linux, so I'm not sure whether this is relevant.

On Windows, it's common to use a shortcut to start Firefox, and if you add a space and -P (or -ProfileManager) to the end of the command line, you will always get the profile manager at startup.

I don't think that's the case for me. The user profile prompt shows up even if I run firefox via command line with no other arguments or options.

Is it Firefox that came with the distro? If not, make sure you have the right to read/write/change files in your profile's path
