it's working here as expected - "Don't ask at startup" box changes
StartWithLastProfile to 0/1 and ProfileManager starts every time if
set to 0.
I'm using it ever since I installed Firefox 2.0a in addition to 1.5.
The machine is running FreeBSD 6-STABLE, Firefox 1.5 and 2.0a,
Enlightenment DR17 but I doubt it's related.
Maybe you're editing the wrong file? Or while Firefox is running? Too
tight file permissions? Just some thoughts. Here's mine profiles.ini:
$ ls -l ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini
-rw-r--r-- 1 karol karol 216 Apr 3 18:01
$ cat ~/.mozilla/firefox/profiles.ini
