Let Browserism open Firefox in different profiles

I use multiple Firefox profiles for different contexts. Adding rules to open links in different Firefox profiles would be extremely useful. I guess it might be possible to support this with multiple "fake" apps, but supporting multiple profiles would be useful.

I’m not sure this is something I can implement, but I will definitely look into it. Apps in the Mac App Store are very limited in how they can interact with other apps (due to Apple’s sandboxing requirement).

    Hi. I vote this up as well!

    This is a simple shell variant, wondering if I can register a "new" chrome app to the list?

    open -na "Google Chrome" --args --profile-directory="Profile 12"

    No news on this? I'd love to see this feature for Chrome as I work width ~5 different profiles and this Browserism functionality would save me a lot of clicks!
