Steps to reproduce:

Many users want to be able to make certain links open in specific containers. They would usually use a browser picker type app where they can configure rules for certain URLs. This could be solved by adding a custom URL scheme to Firefox where you can specify the container name and the URL as URL search parameters. For example: firefox+container:name=MyContainer&url=https://mozilla.org.

I'm aware of https://github.com/honsiorovskyi/open-url-in-container, but I think this is such a core feature that it should be built-in. That extension is also not actively maintained.

This is actively maintained https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/multi-account-containers/, and includes that feature.

I was told on the multi-account-containers issue tracker that it is not available there and have to be implemented in Firefox itself: https://github.com/mozilla/multi-account-containers/issues/2360

I will set this enhancement as new so the engineering team could decide if they take in consideration changing this.

The Bugbug bot thinks this bug should belong to the 'Firefox::Address Bar' component, and is moving the bug to that component. Please correct in case you think the bot is wrong.

Component: Untriaged → Address Bar

Any news on that issue so Velja and Choosy Developers can implement it ?

This is about the command line, not the Address Bar. I don't think adding a special protocol is the way to go here.
