it's probably a firefox misfeature

i've never seen this happen before.  but previous times firefox was started via command when starting with a url.  i have created a bunch of .desktop files in ~/Desktop to launch firefox to go to that web site.  one of them comes here.  but when i launch a 2nd one with another url, the 1st one closes and the new one (in the current workspace) inherits or steals, for sure takes, the tabs from the one that closed and they now appear on the new one that was supposed to be the 2nd one.  i wonder whoever wanted a "feature" like this.  i guess this is another case of needing to disable server mode like the terminal did, but worse.  so i ran this command in that directory to fix them all. but now it complains that firefox is already running.

(fgrep -l xec=firefox *.desktop|while read n;do sed -i 's/xec=firefox/xec=firefox -no-remote/' "$n";done)

--no-remote with 2 dashes or
--new-instance     Open new instance, not a new window in running instance.
or -P aprofile
