  Generally, any change you make in a profile affects all tabs/windows
opened by that profile.  A workaround is to have a separate profile for
each website (or group of websites) that you visit a lot.  I've got over
20 profiles in Pale Moon ( a Firefox fork ) which still operates
similarly to Firefox.  Your program launcher/menubar would need to have
entries corresponding to the separate profiles e.g.

firefox -new-instance -p google
firefox -new-instance -p slashdot
firefox -new-instance -p wordpress
firefox -new-instance -p youtube

etc, etc.
