How to always start Firefox with Profile manager

Posted by: mynag In: Solutions & Tips|Windows

You probably knew how to create firefox profiles to store different browser settings, cookies, bookmarks, plugins and etc. Creating a shortcut to open firefox profile manager is easy. All you have to do is to add the “-P” or “-profilemanager” at the end of firefox.exe

When you launch firefox via a profile manager for the first time. The profile manager pop ups and you will get to select the user profile to start with. However, if you already have a firefox window opened, subsequent activiting of the firefox shortcut will open a new firefox window of the activated profile instead.

So in order to launch the profile manager again so that you can choose a different profile while keeping the other profiles open at the same time, create another new firefox shortcut and name it “Firefox profile manager”.

At the shortcut properties, the “Target” depending on where your firefox program is located should look something like the following:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -P -no-remoteĀ
