I put "firefox -Pfoo %u" in a panel icon, with different foo in different 
places, and can start three different firefox instances (I have three screens, 
and I often use them for different purposes e.g. if I need to log into our web 
app under an admin and non-admin user ID at the same time ... this is extremely 
useful for testing purposes).

It's kludgy, but it works. Perhaps even a script that created a profile based on 
the display name? "firefox -Pprofile-%DISPLAY" might cut it, if anyone fancies 
trying it.
