Open Terminal.

File -> Save As...

Save as "Firefox Profile Manager"  (you _may_ have to put .term at  
the end of this)

Choose "Where".  Desktop is easy to find.  Move it later.....

Under "Execute this Command", put your command line in there.  You  
might add a ";exit" to the end of it to auto-close the Terminal window.


Haven't tested myself, but it should work.  Good luck!


P.S. -- "MAC" is a hardware address.  "Mac" is a computer.
