2nd Profile Utility

Hey Folks,

Feeling kind of dumb over here, but we deployed the Portable ESR release to our POS registers a few weeks back and now need to add a second profile. The issue seems to be that we installed it at C:\FirefoxPortable and the 2nd profile utility keeps attempting to locate it at C:\portableapps\firefoxportable.

I've tried installing it to the root of the C: drive to no avail. Any idea how I can change this without having to create that subfolder?

Thanks much!

Same Location

If you have Firefox Portable installed to X:\FirefoxPortable you can install the 2nd profile utility to X:\FirefoxPortable2ndProfile and it will use the install at X:\FirefoxPortable.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

That's what I figured, but it keeps saying it can't find the firefox executable.

Working Here

It's working here without issue in the configuration I specified above. Are you sure you installed Firefox Portable ESR to C:\FirefoxPortable and not to C:\FirefoxPortableESR?

Step by step [3 methods]

FYI: As part of a different project, in order to help FF users, I created a concurrent/multiple-profiles wiki section in our github pages

Feel free to use this

EDIT: It also tells you where and what to put in ini files to fix things if you move/rename folders

Thank you for saving my

Thank you for saving my sanity. I've had it with Chrome and I've been looking for quite a while a way to run multiple concurrent profiles in portable Firefox. First method works like a charm for me!

as always, should any of the above seem greek to you, don't worry; it probably is...
