Firefox - How to Create a New Profile
(0 - user rating)
Written by mypchell.com   
Its no secret that Firefox is the best browser. To date, no other browser has been able to match it’s speed, security and features (Internet Explorer 7 Failed to top Firefox. Internet Explorer 8 has come close, but there are still a lot of features that are lacking). With that said, over time Firefox does get cluttered up with extensions and other plugins that can slow it down. To fix this slowdown it is recommended to create a new profile. This guide will show you how to create a new profile

Note: Click on any image for a larger view of that particular image.


Before you start: Make sure that Firefox is closed (so either copy these instructions so you can view them offline, memorize the instructions or simply print them off).

Then go to


Then


Then type firefox –Profilemanager




Then Click Ok


Special Note: If you are using Windows Vista , instead of going to Run, you can go to Start, then use the Start Menu Search and type in firefox –Profilemanager. You should see an icon for firefox –Profilemanager, simply click on it

If you still have problems getting the Profile Manager to come up please first Follow this guide to enable Run

This will bring up the profile manager. With the profile manager up, simply click on new, then give the new profile a name. Then to launch the new profile, simply double click on the new profile you just created.


Please note that with a new profile you will need to transfer your bookmarks, extensions, saved passwords etc. Instructions on how to do that can be found Here.
