Can I have two FireFox icons on my Desktop, one for Private Browsing and another for Non-Private Browsing?

This used to be done on the Command Line. You could modify the link to the FireFox file in the Short Cut to invoke Private Browsing. But can that still be done today?

In the menus of FireFox, relative to Private Browsing, there are several options for the specific type and degree of Private Browsing. I wondered if this added complexity prevented Command Line invoking of Private Browsing.

So, if I can invoke this on the Command line (in the short cut) then I can have one version for Normal Browsing and another version for Private Browsing.

Thoughts?

You can run two profile at the same time, one set to Always Use Private Browsing Mode and the other not set that way.
