    I would love to support Firefox profiles in the same was as Chrome profiles (where each profile can be treated as a distinct browser). Unfortunately, that hasn’t been possible to achieve so far.

    Firefox does have command line arguments that can be used to launch a new instance of the browser for a specific profile, but once it’s running there’s no way I can find to control which profile a newly opened link will be sent to (the closest I’ve been able to get is forcing Firefox to start a another new instance for the profile, which opens the link in the right profile, but also causes the previous profile instance—and any windows or tabs it had open—to quit).

    I’ll keep coming back and reviewing this—maybe it will become possible in future Firefox versions.

    not sure if its possible or helps but...
    Is it possible to get a list of all running process ID's for firefox and then use something like 'lsof' to see what files they have open. Then maybe using that list you could see which has a given profile open to know which pid to target?

    I use a different firefox profile for each project I work on. Right now I use MultiFirefox to make this more seamless.

    If Choosy would allow me to specify which profile based hostname/url etc... that would make a seamless experience.

    Now that version 2.0 is out, the next focus for Choosy is tighter integration with browsers. I already added Chrome Profile and Incognito support, and would love to do the same for other browsers.
