Is it possible to run multiple instances of Firefox with different profiles?

I have a Firefox profile for normal browsing and a separate one that I use for web development and similar tasks, mainly because the extensions I use for one profile aren't always needed for the other and it keeps things running more quickly. Is there a way that I can launch my development profile while I'm using the browsing profile? I've seen some people say that running firefox -p "Profile Name" from the Run box (Windows Vista, btw) should do it, but that hasn't worked for me. Thanks!
