How to switch quickly between Firefox windows of different profiles using hotkeys on Mac

more options

Hi!

I have two Firefox windows open. One is of my 'Personal' profile and the other is of my 'Work' profile. (Both set in 'about:profiles'). I would like to switch between the two using hotkeys.

While I'm able to switch between Firefox windows of the same profile using the default "Cmd + ` ", it's not working between windows of different profiles. "Alt + tab" works of course but that's slow if I haven't activated one of my profiles (window) for a while.

If there isn't a native solution, I'd also be interested in hearing about Lua + "Karabiner-elements" workarounds if you are familiar with them.

Thanks!

I use only one profile (on Linux). I can switch between Firefox windows using alt+`. That also works on MacOS, AFAIK.

To switch between Firefox windows on Mac, use: (Shift) "Command + ~" (Tilde) or possibly backtick (`)

Thanks for your inputs, however as I state in my issue:
