How to run a specific firefox profile headless

I have the following code to use a specific Firefox profile (controlled with the variable useFireFoxProfile). These profiles have specific selected certificates to login in our application. When running this in normal Firefox it works great, however when running Firefox headless, it looks like it doesn’t open the specific Firefox profile.
I’ve taken a screenshot and it looks like its stuck precisely on the spot where it would normaly would open the certificate selection popup.

@kazurayam Thank you for this tip!
I’ve added a switch case for the headless driver and added an argument for headless and now it works!

case WebUIDriverType.FIREFOX_HEADLESS_DRIVER:
		// Set Firefox profile to be used
		
		ProfilesIni profile = new ProfilesIni()
	
		FirefoxProfile FF = profile.getProfile(useFireFoxProfile)
	
		FirefoxOptions options = new FirefoxOptions().setProfile(FF)
		.addPreference('browser.helperApps.neverAsk.saveToDisk', 'application/pdf, application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.spreadsheetml.sheet, application/vnd.openxmlformats-officedocument.wordprocessingml.document, application/zip, application/octet-stream, application/x-zip-compressed, multipart/x-zip')
		.addArguments('--headless')
	
		System.setProperty('webdriver.gecko.driver', DriverFactory.getGeckoDriverPath())

		WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(options)
	
		DriverFactory.changeWebDriver(driver)
	
		firefoxUsed = true
