In command line I can start a specific firefox profile doing someting like that:
firefox -P my_specific_profile

Is it possible to configure emacs for use a specific Firefox profile when using browse-url command?


Take a look here. You'll want to add "-P my_specific_profile" to browse-url-firefox-arguments, and everything should work.

  • @Dan this link points to the right section on the page, but Chrome doesn't jump to it for some reason. Firefox goes where it should though. – user12563 Sep 3 '16 at 16:34

  • A #toc8 Emacs Wiki URL fragment isn't reliable -- that's just whatever the 8th heading is at the time. Add or delete a heading in that range, and you're suddenly linking to something else. – phils Oct 4 '16 at 1:38
