[Bug 177262] Re: firefox -ProfileManager does not open profile manager

I found this at <http://tips.webdesign10.com/firefox-browser/firefox-

There is a workaround that I found on Launchpad -- just use the
following command instead:

firefox -a asdf

That will launch the profile manager in Ubuntu 7.10, Gutsy Gibbon.
Hopefully they will fix the bug in the next release.

Is there more information regarding this workaround? For me, that didn't
open the profile manager, either, but it did open a new window using my
alternate profile manager. I'd like to understand what's going on.
