Whenever I have firefox open in another activity (say “work”) and try to launch a webpage from another activity (say “browsing”), the activities will change to the one with the already open firefox instance. Is it possible to make it so that apps will open only on that particular activity on that particular desktop, it really limits the use of krunner if i have to open firefox manually in the location i want only then to use krunner with it.
Open a new Firefox instance in said Activity.
firefox -ProfileManager -no-remote
Will enable you to create a new instance of Firefox.
firefox -P <profilename> -no-remote
Will Open that Instance
Is there any way to avoid using terminal? Its a pain to have to open the terminal every time you want to open firefox
By making a separate launcher ( desktop application) you could.
This is how I open separate instances of Firefox.
