Make desktop shortcut open new window

I can't seem to figure out how to have the desktop shortcut for Firefox open a new window even when I have a window already open. As it is, when I click on the shortcut when I have a Firefox window already open, it simply opens a new tab. I do want to keep links opening in new tabs, I just want to be able to open a new window with the shortcut. Is there a way of doing this?

I'm working with Windows 10 Home on a Lenovo laptop.

Right click on the desktop shortcut you are using and select Properties. Add the -new-window command line option to the end of the Target field (outside of the quotes).

If you want to open a specific page, you can also add a URL to the end of that, for example:

-new-window https://www.mozilla.org

Otherwise, it should just open a new window with whatever homepage(s) you have set Firefox to use.

As a side note, on Windows 10, if you right click on the Firefox icon in the Windows taskbar, you should also have the option to open a new window directly from there. Alternatively, you can also use the Ctrl + N keyboard shortcut when you are in Firefox to open a new window as well.

Hope this helps.
