I am long time fan of Cairo-Dock, first time poster to the forum. I am currently running CairoDock 3.3.2 on Xubuntu 13.10. I have a question about how to achieve multiple Firefox icons in the same dock. The idea is I have a Firefox profile for Personal and one for Work. I realize I could combine the two, but I like to keep them separate. The problem is I can launch them both from CLI or icons I created on the desktop, but it doesn't use a separate icon when I launch them both. It appears as if it's a second window (same icon) when I don't want it to do that.

I launch my personal profile using:
firefox -no-remote -P Personal

I launch my work profile using:
firefox %u

Any idea on how I can keep the two separate in the dock?

you will have to set different classes to your firefox instances.

This was discussed a few days ago. I hope it will help you configure it to your needs: http://glx-dock.org/bg_topic.php?t=7646&pos=0#mess_82862

You're a genius! Recap: Two profiles/launchers for Firefox requested.

---
Commands to launch separate Firefox instances:

firefox -no-remote -P Personal

Launch my work profile using (default):
firefox %u
--
Configuration:

1. I used the default Firefox icon/launcher for my work profile.
2. Create a new launcher in the dock for my "Personal" profile.
Lancher's name: Firefox
Image's name or path: I used a different firefox icon from google (a blue one) so I can keep the two icons/separate
Command to launch on click: firefox -no-remote -P Personal --class ff
NOTE: I am using a class "ff"
Select Extra parameters:
Class of program: ff

Done. Now I have two separate Firefox launchers/icons for my (Work/Personal) profiles in my dock.

Fantastic! Please consider this resolved.

I've recently installed cairo-dock and I'm attempting to do exactly this, so far without success. I've created a second launcher. The standard Firefox launcher uses defaults whereas the second launcher the command I am using is
firefox -no-remote -P ScriptUser -- class ff
. Also, under 'extra parameters' I've set the class of program as 'ff'. When I launch firefox all instances of it appear associated with the default icon in the dock and nothing under the new launcher I have created. Any ideas?

Many thanks,

Hi, I guess your mistake is the space between -- and class

try:
firefox -no-remote -P ScriptUser --class ff
