Re: Opening 2 Firefox profiles

Interesting. As a variety of sources have said "Linux is not an
operating system," it's kernel, and there are many incompatibilities
between various distributions.

Well, that's debatable. But to be clearer ...

From : http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/system-requirements.html

(the important bits...) :
* Linux kernel 2.2.14 (with glibc 2.3.2, XFree86-3.3.6, gtk+2.0, fontconfig/xft and libstdc++5)

If you've already created profile #2, try and start firefox with the -P {profilename} switch .. eg "/path/to/firefox -P TorProfile". If that doesn't work, you can create a new (passwordless/nologin) user and start firefox with sudo (eg: "sudo -H -u torfox /path/to/firefox").

You can also create a profile from the CLI by doing "/path/to/firefox -CreateProfile {profileName}" and then run that one with the -P {profileName} switch.

If you still can't get if figured out, post all the requested info as a bugreport and somebody will look into it (over at mozilla.org).
