I'm trying to setup different profiles for simultaneous use (Work, Personal, Study, etc) on the same Firefox Account since I want to take advantage of the sync feature for Linux/Windows dual boot.
But I am having an issue where opening a different profile where one is already open 'bleeds', or merges, their bookmarks and themes (and probably other stuff but those are the immediately visible). The bookmarks I save in one appear in the other
I read these related issues:
and added the -no-remote flag, and indeed I get a dialogue screen to select the profile I want, but this merge keeps happening and I don't know why.
The console command I use to launch firefox is
nohup firefox -no-remote > /dev/null 2>&1 &1>/dev/null &'
and all my profile directories are located in:
root directory: `/home/user/.cache/mozilla/firefox/`
local directory: `/home/user/.mozilla/firefox/`
in different directories with their own names.
What I am looking for, is being able to open different instances of the browser with different profiles simultaneously, and each of them having their own bookmarks/history/etc, while also syncing those so when I change the boot to Windows.
I am trying this on Linux (Lubuntu)
Any help will be appreciated.
