firefox-profile-launcher

General Description

Java Swing application that launches Firefox/Iceweasel profiles.

Current Benefits

  • Profiles are sorted alphabetically as opposed to Firefox's native profile manager where profiles are sorted by creation date
  • Profiles are each launched as separate processes. This isolation allows for a given profile's process to be killed without affecting other running instances.
  • Running instances can be easily differentiated and identified in ps output.
  • No external library dependencies besides standard Java runtime

Limitations

  • Not able to create new profiles itself. Use Firefox's native profile manager (firefox -ProfileManager) to create new profiles.
  • Mac OS not supported yet

Java Source Code Level
