Start Firefox with specific profile
Hi there. Is there a way to start a test using a specific profile in Firefox?

I'm running into an issue in Firefox. I'm trying to run a test against a secure (https) site in our internal development environment but the images will not load because there are self assigned certs being used on our internal development web servers. The way to go around this manually in Firefox is to add a security exception.

I tried to create a Firefox profile called "WPT User" and manually accepted the certs under that profile. Then I updated the wptdriver.ini file to use the "WPT User" profile, but when I try to run a test, the browser starts up and nothing happens. The test does not start and the driver times out and closes the browser.

Am I on the right track and I'm missing one thing? Or am I completely off?

Here's the Firefox settings in my wptdriver.ini file:

exe="C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"
options='-profile "WPT User" -no-remote

Thanks in advance!
