[openbox] How to start firefox on a certain desk/desktop with dialog displayed

I am starting firefox with (via menu.xml) with 

    firefox -P Newstart -new-instance

which displayes the dialog to choose a profile.
This is needed, since there a few [CENSORED] sites,
which get totally confused, by this or that plugin
I am runnig -- for that I have an "empty" profile.

The according part of the menu.xml is:

<item label="Firefox Normal">
    <action name="Execute">
        <command>firefox -P Newstart -new-instance</command>

This (should) enusre, that firefox occupies the desk/desktop
from which I have started it...
But it works only half the way: The dialog for choosing the
profile is fired up on the correct desk/desktop...firefox
is displayed on the current desk/desktop, which is not neccessarily
that one, from which I started it.

Is there any way to include firefox itsself in the mechanism, which
put the dialog on the correct desk/desktop?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!
Best regards,
