Firefox 68 Mac, can't start w/profile from command line

Kuphostiwe

Long-time Firefox user with several profiles defined via ProfileManager. Have several AppleScript apps that start firefox-bin with "-P profilename" to start Firefox with the named profile (see <https://spf13.com/post/managing-multiple-firefox-profiles-in-os-x/> for a description of how this is set up). They no longer work. Starting the profiles from a shell prompt also does not seem to work, at best it opens a new Firefox window in each currently-open Firefox profile. Have tried -P with profile name (profile name quoted), --profile with path to profile's "Root Directory", --profile with path to profile's "Local Directory", pathnames quoted if necessary; all of the above with --new-instance. No joy. What am I missing?

Additional information: One way profiles do work: about:profiles, and "Launch profile in new browser". So I think my profile definitions are in order, it's getting them going via firefox-bin command-line arguments that is broken.

Does it work if you use firefox -P "profile" instead of firefox-bin ?

It works the same way: I get a new window for each in-use profile.

Running this from the AppleScript again, I am reminded that it put up a dialog, "The command exited with a non-zero status", and that if I echo $? after trying the same command from a shell prompt the status is 1. (I also get the new window open under the in-use profile, as opposed to the profile I wanted to launch).

That seems to work well enough to get the AppleScript method going again. Thanks! (Might be nice if it were in the usage message.)
