Because of my somewhat excessive use of tabs—which often contain PDFs'—I use 64-bit builds of Firefox. It has now gotten to a point where I want to use different profiles; one for my research the other for my day-to-day stuff.
- Created a new profile called:
Research, by running Firefox with the
- Quit Firefox
- Created two shortcuts following the official documentation; linked to:
[path to firefox]\firefox.exe -no-remote -P "Research"
[path to firefox]\firefox.exe -no-remote -P "default"
- Opened each shortcut
Only the fast profile clicked loaded; opening the second shortcut just opens a new Window in the previous profile. Same happens if I open them with inverse order.
How do I get multiple profiles to work side-by-side; on Windows 8?
