Re: Mac OS X + Linux

Commandline syntax for Linux, MacOSX, and Win is (are?) here: Mozilla Command Line Options.

Mac OS X syntaxes:

* GUI:

hold down Option key (Alt key) when launching FF

* commandline:

* go to "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS", type "./firefox -ProfileManager"

* also, "firefox -?" or "firefox --help" should show you the full list of options; chances are the shorter "-P" is also implemented for macosx

* Browser: type About:Profiles into URL-bar, configure as desired
