 With Firefox, I'm used to running this command to open a separate browser
 with a separate profile:

 firefox --no-remote -P "for-github"

 When I try the same with Torbrowser, I get an error message:

 ./start-tor-browser --no-remote -P "for-github"

 it pops up a dialog box saying "Tor Browser is already running, but is not
 responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Tor
 Browser process, or restart your system."

 How do I run separate profiles simultaneously?
