Multiple Firefox Profiles

This is a quick tip that allows multiple configurations of Firefox on the same user account within Windows or LINUX.

  • First, close all Firefox program instances.
  • Next, from the command line run “firefox -ProfileManager
  • Create a new profile
  • Create a new copy of your Firefox shortcut
  • Modify the shortcuts to run “firefox -P <profilename>

This same trick will also work for Debian IceWeasel or GNU IceCat, the two 100% free variants of Firefox.
