Open URL in running Portable Firefox from command line

I start FirefoxPortable.exe. Then I need to open URL from command line in this running Firefox.

If I run:
G:\Apps\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\firefox.exe http://www.portableapps.com/
Then local Firefox is opened.

If I run:
G:\Apps\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe http://www.portableapps.com/
I get message: "Firefox portable is already running, but is not responding. <...>"
But firefox works correct. It seems like launcher checks running firefox wrong...

How can I open new URL from command line?

Why this topic is totally

Why this topic is totally ignored? I still have this issue even with the latest version of Firefox Portable.

As you can see other people have this problem too: https://portableapps.com/node/18533

I hate it

The problem still exists.
Looks like there is no way to use Firefox Portable as a default browser in Windows, every time you open html file or click a link in another program it gets opened in another profile, not a portable one. Nothing helps.
