I have 2 instances of FIrefox runnning with 2 profile:

- instance 1, launched using the firefox bin and run the default profile
- instance 2, launched using "firefox -no-remote -P dev" 

Then I would like to open a URL in the instance 2 (from command line) (my use case is to start the debugger from my IDE which opens a URL with particular parameters)

Thank you guys for your awesome browser!

That is not possible via the command line. You can only open an URL in a browser instance started via -no-remote by dragging the link in that window or opening the file via the File menu or Firefox > New Tab > Open File
