koala said:The way I do it is to open the properties for the Firefox desktop shortcut, then in Target type "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager (with the quotation marks), then run Firefox from the shortcut to bring up the Profile Manager menu. It might not work if you only have one profile, I haven't tried it that way yet.
I use WinME and the profiles are stored in C:\WINDOWS\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
For XP C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows login/user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<Profile name>\
well, firstly thanks for the replykoala said:When you open Firefox using the Profile Manager menu, you just choose the one you want from the list. Try all four to see which is the original one.
One thing to note in using this procedure to open Profile Manager is that FF needs to be closed for it to work. From Mozilla's page, here:martt said:Typing what you did in the 'Run' box should have opened the Profile Manager, even if you only have one Profile. I wonder if it might be best to back up a few things in Firefox (Bookmarks.html most importantly) and start over with a new installation (including a new Profile). One good thing about Firefox is that this isn't usually too bad to do.
To start the Profile Manager in Windows, follow these steps:
1. Close Firefox completely (select File > Exit from the main menu of Firefox).
2. Select Start > Run... from the Windows Start menu.
3. Enter firefox.exe -profilemanager and press OK.
thanks koalakoala said:At the bottom of the 'Choose User Profile' there's an option to 'don't ask at startup'. If you leave this unchecked, it will bring up the menu every time you start Firefox.
thanks for all ur helpkoala said:Just remove -profilemanager from Target. If the menu comes up again, highlight the required profile, put a checkmark in the 'don't ask at startup' box and you won't get the menu next time you run Firefox.
Only two, "default" (the one I've been using), and "Konig" (the one they made me make). I followed his advice, but it won't let me switch to default. And no, Konig is completely different, none of my bookmarks, settings, etc..koala said:Hi Konig,
How many profiles are in the menu, and did you follow TetonBobs's advice?
Are the default and 'Konig' profiles the same? (same theme, extensions, settings)
