Windows 7: Naming multiple Firefox profile in the taskbar

Naming multiple Firefox profiles in the taskbar

Hi Folks,

I currently use several different Firefox profiles and they are all grouped together on the taskbar. When I hover the mouse over the Firefox icon, it will display the name of the currently opened tab or window of each different profile. Is it possible to change anything so that it will instead show the name of the profiles? For instance: default, Stocks, Developing, etc?

Cheers, Ian
