I’ve been looking for something “official” from the Librewolf team regarding running Librewolf in Docker, but I haven’t found much. There are a few initiatives that seem to support Librewolf Docker containers (eg Github, Docker Hub), but they don’t seem to be referenced much nor heavily used. However, maybe the reason I don’t see it much is that there are better ways to achieve what I’m looking for.
Is there a way to best achieve this?

maybe firejail or flatpak? VMs? containers are not meant for GUI applications, the docker images you see are meant to be used to build LW.
you could use different profiles of LW, or different browsers alongside it. I personally use Nightly every day.
All great points. What I was really hoping to do was something like container A for VPN 1, container B for VPN 2, container C for VPN 3, etc. while my desktop is on a separate VPN. I don’t think this could easily be achieved with different profiles or browsers. I could achieve this with VMs but hadn’t considered it too much yet.
I know Docker images arent usually for GUI applications, but I was really hoping to find something similar to https://github.com/linuxserver/docker-firefox but for LibreWolf. I would be fine with using Firefox if I could figure out how to use uBlockOrigin and Arkenfox with the image by default.
