Step 6: Working with profiles


  1. How to use a unique profile depending on web site type


1. How to use a unique profile depending on web site type

You can have several different user profiles in both Mozilla 1.x and Firefox.

Mozilla 1.x --help shows:

          -P <profile>            Start with <profile>.
          -ProfileWizard          Start with profile wizard.
          -ProfileManager         Start with profile manager.
          -SelectProfile          Start with profile selection dialog.

Firefox --help shows:

          -P <profile>            Start with <profile>.
          -ProfileManager         Start with profile manager.

You can make your menu start the browser with -P to get a dialog box where you can select profile when it is started. You can make new profiles and manage them by starting with the -ProfileManager parameter. It is generally a good idea to have one profile for bank and other important services and a standard profile for general surfing.
