Guide: How to Create and Manage Firefox Profiles using Switchy
A few weeks ago, we discussed how to create a new user profile in Firefox using the built-in profile manager. Profile management makes it really easy to create individual profiles, but it doesn’t make managing or switching between these profiles easy. You need to close Firefox, go back to the profile manager, select the other profile and then open it. Too many steps for someone who regularly uses different Firefox profiles for different tasks.
So today we will tell you about a little add-on called Switchy (for Firefox of course) which allows you to easily manage your various Firefox profiles right from your browser toolbar. You can think of Switchy as a decent Firefox Profile Manager front end to create and manage different profiles on Firefox.
Assuming you’re on Firefox, open the Switchy add-on page and add it to your Firefox. Once your browser has restarted, you will see the Switchy button in the top right corner of the screen. Let’s start creating some profiles.
Click on the add-on and select ManagerA new Switchy tab will open showing you the full list of profiles you currently have (if any) and a profile you are creating button painted in red color. Click on it to call up the profile manager.
In my previous post I already talked about how to create and delete profiles using the profile manager and so you can refer to it if you have any issues.
Now when you need to change your profile, just click on the Switchy button and select the desired profile from the list. The Firefox will restart with the changes you selected.
Note: Make sure to install this add-on on each profile individually if you need it to work on it globally.
You can also assign specific websites to different profiles. Open a web page you want to assign, click Switchy and select Assign this page to the profile. Now configure some basic options and confirm your selection.
The extension is a job well done, but when I installed it for the first time, it showed some profiles that existed but were removed a few weeks ago. I accidentally selected a profile that never existed and after that my browser couldn’t open. I have rebooted the system but in spirit. Finally I had to reinstall Firefox. So my suggestion would be to backup your existing Firefox profiles before trying this out.back to menu ↑
