Superstition sets the whole world in flames; Philosophy quenches themVoltaire
Firefox used to be a popular blogging topic for me, but since migrating to OSX I have rarely used it. However, recently working on design scamps I have found a need to call upon the Web Developer toolbar once again. So I am once again using Firefox regularly.
First thing I wanted to do after installing 1.5RC3 was setup multiple profiles since I was also keen to return to some experimental XForms development I had started on Windows. Also I like to have a profile for extension testing - especially as RC3 is a new release.
To set up multiple profiles it is necessary to burrow into the APP file. I decided to let a couple of aliases in my .bashrc save me the trouble of navigating through the finder.
# run the profile manager to create a new profile alias foxpm='$HOME/Applications/Browsers/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -ProfileManager' # start firefox using a specific profile eg. fox xforms alias fox='$HOME/Applications/Browsers/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox-bin -p'
Note my HD is partitioned in a way such that I can keep all my applications distinct from OSX.
Then just a case of a few AppleScript shortcuts that I can call from Quicksilver rather than having to keep entering the terminal.
