Accessible Profile Manager

Hi,

Is it possible for Firefox to implement an easy and accessible profile manager just like Chrome rather than going through about:profiles?

I am using containers but need to separate work and personal workspace. Some of domains are overlapped like Google and Microsoft services. so separating by domains cannot work.

Sure, and I changed the command line options to always bring up profile manager when I start FF - but that USED to be just an option you could toggle in settings instead of futtzing around with the shortcut or changing stuff on the command line.

I have no problem doing that - I use a lot *nix command line stuff - but an option in settings to always launch profile manager at start would still

  1. be easier
  2. be usable for people who aren't comfortable with such stuff
  3. would bring feature parity with Chrome (and old FF versions for that matter)

also probably make about:profile accessible by clicking a tab in settings would probably be good, instead of having to type it manually

You could set your Homepage to be about:about or about:profiles so you can left click on Homepage button or middle click it to open in a new tab.

You can open about:profiles as a pinned tab or as a bookmark on the Bookmarks Toolbar to have easy access all the time.

Hi everyone, It doesn't look like the person who posted the original question is going to respond, and others seem to be using this thread for there own issues, so I'm going to lock this thread.
