I use a few firefox profiles and since there is not a quick and easy profile switcher/loader addon, I’ve taken to using dmenu/roif to start firefox in the right profile. It will look like this:
This desktop entry will run firefox with the profile called ‘work’.
#!/usr/bin/env xdg-open [Desktop Entry] Version=1.0 Name=Firefox Work Type=Application GenericName=Firefox Work Profile Comment=Firefox but work profile Exec=firefox -P work Icon=firefox Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Network;WebBrowser; Keywords=web;browser;internet;
The important line is:
Exec=firefox -P work
