How do you create different "instances" of Firefox on the desktop? Or are you just talking about different windows?

You can also run multiple profiles in parallel, using something like

firefox --no-remote --profile-manager

I have that as an alias in bash, and a shortcut on my Windows desktop.

I run a hypervisor OS and all of my work is done in contextual VMs, which each run their own instance of Firefox.
