Hi Randall,
                     According to man firefox the options "-no-remote -P 
profile" may do what you require, however, I have not tried this, or 
tried to run more than one firefox process. A single firefox uses enough 
resources. Although, having tried Iron/chromium, I have gone back to 
firefox. IMO chromium runs multiple processes to give the appearance 
that less resources are used.
