Hey Guys,

I've been experiencing this bug for about the same time as Tony. The bug
is still there after I upgraded to 10.10 as well.

The problem isn't with the profiles as such. It's with the cookies. This
is my workaround that I use so that I can continue to use firefox with
the bankwest website:

1. Edit -> Preferences -> Privacy Tab -> click "Remove individual cookies" link
2. Search for bankwest
3. Delete all of the bankwest cookies

After doing this I go to the normal bankwest login page and I can login.
I always get an error after logging in but the session functions as
normal. It won't let me log in again unless I clear the cookies.
Alternatives to this are using private browsing mode etc. Of course all
of these workaround are still pretty annoying :) For some strange reason
Firefox on Ubuntu must have some kind of bug around it's cookie
management.. That's the only thing I can think of. I even tried changing
my user agent string (using useragent switcher FF plugin) and the
problem is still there. This effectively proves that the site isn't
sending different cookies because it detects firefox with Ubunutu.

I also contacted bankwest but heard nothing.

Hopefully one day someone is works this out :)
