Can you please send me directly your file?

Are you sure you have your profiles in ~/.mozilla/firefox?  In the
.mozconfig file we are using to compile it, there is specified:
ac_add_options --with-user-appdir=.gnuzilla.  I have this directory
with profile information, can you check if it is present on your
machine too?

As I said you, this value was specified at compile time.  I don't know
if it is possible to choose another one at run time but I don't since
this location contains files used by Firefox/IceCat at startup.
