I want to automatically move certain windows of firefox based on <criteria>* to certain virtual desktops.

VirtuaWin supports this but it needs

Class Name: MozillaWindowClass

Window Name: How to make different firefox windows recognizable by VirtuaWin? - Super User - Mozilla Firefox

Process Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe

None of them gives me anything useful to differentiate between my different windows.

I'm using different profiles in firefox if that helps me.

I realized I can change the firefox executable to anything.

Since I was already using different profiles, and so different instances anyways,

I've made hardlinks to firefox.exe as



… and launch them as

firefox_1.exe -p 1

firefox_2.exe -p 2

… So now it shows

Process Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox_1.exe &

Process Name: C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox_2.exe

which satisfies the criteria of differentiating between two windows.
