I been using this trick to have separate taskbar icons for separate profiles in Windows, but it stopped working with the recent upgrade to FF62. It used a boolean value taskbar.grouping.useprofile set to true to get the effect I wanted. Does anyone have another way to get the same effect or is this officially discontinued.

Confirmed on Windows10.
61.0.2 works fine(taskbar icons are separated) but 62.0 doesn't work(taskbar icons are grouped to one).
It might have been introduced by Bug 1447719 - Set browser.startup.blankWindow to true on Windows and Linux.
So workaround is
browser.startup.blankWindow = false
(note that I don't know side-effects)

Thank you, browser.startup.blankWindow works, I don't know the side effects either, will update thread if I find any.
