Tor Browser window confused with Firefox in GNOME 3

When Tor Browser starts, in GNOME Shell it will be grouped with Firefox instead of creating it's own application group. This is most likely down to Tor Browser's the WM_CLASS prop WM_CLASS(STRING) = "Navigator", "Firefox"

Apparently Firefox supports a --class argument which can set the appropriate WM_CLASS.

./Browser/firefox --class "Tor Browser" -profile Data/Browser/profile.default works great for me.
