If the initial condition is that no instances of Firefox is running then
"firefox -ProfileManager" will indeed bring up the Profile Manager and
allow one to chose which profile to use or manage profiles. However, that
is the only circumstance where this occurs. Once a Firefox instance is
running subsequent invocations skip the profile manager and start a new
window with the same profile as the first.
Is this intended behaviour?
