How to organize & name lots of windows?

Hi, I have several Firefox profiles and everytime I want to change profile I need to open each window to check which one I need. Is there a way to name, tag or change the icon on them so I know which is which staight away?

Also does anyone know how I could stack these windows so I just need to click 1 icon then choose from the list?

Currently it's like this:


Thanks for any help

Thanks, but that doesn't work for multiple Firefox profile windows and they are the only ones I want to combine.

Thanks for trying to help, but that option has already been selected and doesn't work for multiple Firefox profiles.

P.S. I'm computer literate.

I don't see why FireFox is any different than any other program as far as Taskbar icons are concerned. I use SeaMonkey which is very similar to FireFox only it's a Suite, browser, email, html editor, etc. and the icons stack very nicely for me.

Right click on the Taskbar and select Properties.
On the Taskbar tab, make sure Taskbar buttons is set to Always combine, hide labels.

Sorry, I forgot to mention I'm using a program called ultramon for a second taskbar on another monitor.

I'd look for a Ultramon forum and see if anyone there can help.
