firefox in its current form supports creating multiple profiles, but it’s not as easy compared to Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome, and that’s disappointing. The feature is very useful, and since Google is now making a big deal out of it, we can only hope that Mozilla sees the light before long.

Why You Might Need Multiple Firefox Profiles

Some users may wish to have multiple profiles for different reasons. For example, having one profile for work and another for personal on one computer makes a lot of sense. This is important because not every company can afford to provide employees with a work computer, which means they are forced to use their own.

For those who do web development, having different profiles is beneficial. With this, there is no need to test websites and apps on a single profile, just run everything in a newly created profile and that’s it. The only downside is how we go about enabling this feature.

Using the Firefox User Profile Manager, you can create one or more Firefox profiles on your Windows 10 PC, in just a few simple steps.

  • Launch Firefox browser
  • Type about:profiles in the address bar and press enter
  • The About Profiles the page will open
  • Hurry Create a new profile to start the wizard
  • Enter the required details
  • Click Finish and restart the browser.

The first thing you will need to do is type about:profiles in the URL bar and press the Enter keyboard key.

You should now see the About Profiles page with a short description at the top.

Now, in order to create a new profile, please click on the button that says Create a new profile.

Follow the instructions and be sure to give it a name to better separate it from the others on the list. When you’re done, click Finish.

Of the same About Profiles page, find the one you just created and click Launch profile in a new browser.

After that, a new Firefox browser window should appear, separate from the current window.

OK, so using about:profiles is the easiest way, but there are other ways you might consider.

  • Press “Wind + R” on your keyboard.
  • Type firefox –new-instance –ProfileManager and press Enter.
  • Alternatively, you can type firefox.exe -p and press Enter.

Rename and delete Firefox profile

When it comes to renaming a profile and deleting it, the task is simple. Just go back to the Profile Manager section, then from the profile you want to rename, just click on the Rename button. In terms of deleting the profile, press Eliminate and that’s all.

Set Default Firefox Profile

After creating a profile, it automatically becomes the default profile after opening it. However, if you have more than one and want to manually make one of them the default choice, click the button that says Set as default profile.

I hope this helps you!
