open(URL) and how to distinguisch between iceweasel instances?
 
Hello *,

there are several programs which open(URL) and span external webbrowsers
like "icewesel2. The problem I am encountering is, if you use several
profiles and have them open like "private", "devel" and "electronic".

Now, e.g. klicking on a link in "pidgin", open the selected URL in a
webbrowser instance randomly, mostly of course, in the wrong window.

So, my question is now, is there a possibility to make this configuable?

My idea was, to use a wraper which could be even configured with a
"preferences list" of DOMAINS which should be redirected to the
appropriated iceweael profile.

The problem is, is you have

firefox-bin,12700 -a iceweasel--devel -geometry +0+76 -height 654 -width 1348 -P devel
firefox-bin,17262 -a iceweasel--electronica -geometry +0+76 -height 654 -width 1348 -P electronica
firefox-bin,17700 -a iceweasel--private -geometry +0+76 -height 654 -width 1348 -P private

it currently open any URL in "private", mean, the last instance opened.

So, do you have an idea, how I can open for example any links from
<*.debian.org> in "devel"?

Thanks, Greetings and nice Day/Evening

If I remember correctly, there is an open bug about the remote interface
not being able to cope with multiple profile.

... yeah, wasn't hard to find: bug 366129
