Quit Terminal without quitting process? / Multiple simultaneous Firefox profiles

Hi, I'd like to know how I can start a process via command line that is not a child of the app used to invoke the command.

For example if I open Terminal and enter:
Code:
/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -P "ProfileName"
It will run that Firefox profile, but only as long as I keep Terminal open.

Also tried creating an app bundle in AppleScript Editor, like so:
Code:
do shell script "/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -P \"ProfileName\""
This is less annoying, but still requires the launcher app to remain open alongside Firefox.

Any ideas?
