firefox with multiple profiles!

Using Firefox with multiple profiles simultaneously has been broken on Ubuntu for a while. No matter the flags to the second run of firefox, it'd just pop up a new window.

Again, the Ubuntu Firefox bug has the key: despite both the -help output and manpage suggesting the -P <profile> flag, that is in fact ignored unless you also use the -a <profile> flag which is only documented on the manpage.

Have I mentioned that I hate computers?
