I'm interested in using apparmor to secure my laptop, and I am wondering if there is a place where I can find apparmor profiles for firefox and other desktop programs.

The profile for Firefox comes with the installation of Firefox. However, it is not enabled by default. To enable it, you'll have to run this command from a terminal:

sudo aa-enforce /etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox

Other profiles are listed here (for 12.10):

On disk they are in /etc/apparmor.d

You can install the additional apparmor-profiles Install apparmor-profiles package to get even more profiles. See the following documentation for more information:
