Better than openning the Profile Manager in the console Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
Super simple and useful.
But so simple that for renaming and deleting profiles, the user experience is not normal, making it not intuitive, so the user should go to the plugin page and find the instructions.
Thank you jgomo3 for the review! I am working on a webextension version for this which will be much more intuitive. :)
e10s ? Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
It seems it doesn't support e10s but since e10s is disabled on my profile, I couldn't say if it still properly works despite that.
I know mozilla changes too frequently and it's pain in the as* for dev to maintain their add-on. I empathize with you. I hope it will be compliant with future firefox release. I love it.
Do you plan to update it?
Hi there thanks for the review! It actually just needs the multiprocessCompatible flag. But I am redoing it here - https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/ - I had done a v2 and then a v3 but both of them I didn't like. I'm doing a redesign again I started last week with v4 - https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/ haha
Great! Asesome work! Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
It's even better than chrome profiles button :P
Thanks very much this is an awesome comment! :)
corrupted Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles
Use to be awesome, simple yet complete; however, i cannot download it anymore, it is either unsigned (old version?) or corrupted :(
Hi there Cedric, that's odd how it's not working. It is signed and working perfectly on my end.
The beta, Profilist v3 is complicated I agree, but that is only for developer mode.
Does what it says; no surprises. Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Good UI/UX, very useful.
Thank you very much! Please check out the beta of v3, its at the bottom of the listing page. Here is a link to it - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/profilist/versions/beta
I would love to hear your thoughts on the beta :)
Simple but useful Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Can create and switch between profiles in a way that integrates with Firefox natively. Should be included by default
Thank you! Please try the beta from the "Development Version" at the bottom of the main page. I would love to hear your thoughts on that version! :)
Very Helpful Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
I'm not sure why the native Firefox UI doesn't expose its profile manager. Profiles are very handy for lots of things. This addon doesn't do everything that Firefox's profile manager does, but it doesn't really need to. It handles switching, creating/deleting, and naming profiles just fine. And it looks good, too.
Thanks! Try out v3 from the development channel it is super nice! :) The dev version is in a tab for now, but I plan to bring it back into the main menu in v3.1. v3 allows you to create desktop shortcuts and badge the profiles. :)
Extremely useful Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
This is a important complement for Firefox. Is very important manage all profiles and switch it when you want.
Thank you very much for the review Batista! :)
v3 missing from hamburger menu Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
tried installing via dev channel and on github, no hamburger menu like v1? I don't want to type about:fsadfasdfas every time. I tried in a new blank profile and it still didn't show in the hamburger menu. Thanks
Edit: I was hoping to try a newer version with the delete ability in the hamburger menu, is there a version number you can recommend until you are able to push 3.1 beta? Thanks for your reply. :)
Thanks for trying out the beta! For 3.0 it's just in the tab at about:profilist?html. But in 3.1 I hope to drop it into the XUL main-menu/hamburger-menu. :)
What I do right now is just pin that tab as my first tab, and I can use the shortcut Ctrl + 1 to jump to it, here's a screenshot - http://i.imgur.com/jAimWMb.png
I haven't enabled the keyboard hotkeys in the beta yet, but it's not so bad, I hite Ctrl + 1 then use up and down arrow keys to go through the profiles, and then hit Enter to launch. Will bring that to beta soon.
What's already there though is filtering, you can type to filter the profiles.
I agree though, the place where it belongs is in the main/hamburger menu. I'll get it there soon. :)

Uma maravilha de complemento Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
Muito bom, gosto muito desse complemento, facilita de mais para ter dois Mozilla Firefox, configuro um com complementos e outro sem complemento! Continue com o desenvolvimento, esta de parabéns por essa excelente extensão!
Gracias!! :) Es demo o version 2 - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKw-BNWMyQM
elegant Noté 5 sur 5 étoiles
simple and beautiful and far easier than the default profile manager. This should've been built into Firefox!
I can think of only one improvement: press-n-holding on something isn't a common Firefox UI trigger, so it'd really help new users if there were a tooltip hint when hovering over profile names, say, something like "press and hold to modify".
edit for dev reply: wow, the upcoming v2.0 is even better with exciting improvements!
Thanks for the review Sammy yeah I agree that is very unintuitive. Here's a screencast of version 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKw-BNWMyQM
Are you using Windows? You can beta v2 if you are on Windows. You can check out the progress here: https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/issues :)
Overall Good Implementation and Design, but with deletion problem & Potention to change Firefox with 'MODE' Noté 3 sur 5 étoiles
From all your add-ons I say this is the best.
It seems to be an add-on worth of 5 stars.
However I would give it a 4 star but will not do so.
This is because:
When installed there is no indication how to delete a profile.
Yes you can make one quite easy, I did for testing purpose.
But when I tried to delete it, then it became complicated in a (re)search.
I ended at the add-on install page (which I thought I left behind for good after the installation).
At the install page I read, more carefully yes, and there it was stated.
'You have to delete the profile name to delete the profile’!
A thought that came to me but I didn't initiated it because it should not be so complicated.
That is why you get 3 STARS ***
Furthermore I would like to give you an idea to work on if you like it. It could be an extension of Profilist. But I prefer it as a separate add-on that work well with Profilist.
I call it MODE. You can call it whatever you like but for the ease of writing let’s stick to it. With mode you can change Firefox into different 'modes'. For example let’s take 'the runner mode'. In this mode you can quickly start the browser with primary add-ons to do you stuff and be on your way. All the other add-ons are of course disabled. MODE goes further than only enabling and disabling add-ons. It reconfigures icons and toolbars just as your liking. Also windows and tabs are reshaped and shown as preferred. Just like your add-on 'WorkspaceHopper'. This is all done with predefined MODE Profiles.
With add-on MODE you can quickly really change into different workspaces with required settings to your liking for that moment for that specific job or project.
Also another benefits is that space is used more optimal. No double add-ons installed in various profiles. It does however require different settings not only for Firefox but also for the add-on. The file sizes on the other hand are smaller and they are easier managed. MODE uses different add-on settings with different modes only when changes are required and with predefined customization rules.
With MODE the large problem of Firefox extensive list of add-on installed is solved. You do not have to enable every add-on anymore with the problem of the overkill of memory and cpu consumption. You do not have to disable the majority of add-ons and forget that they are there. You do not have to enable every single add-on when you need them and disable them again when done.
MODE empowers Firefox as a custom made tool for the Internet & You.
No more a too large Swiss knife in your pocket but an Icon that reshapes to your liking with a push at the button.
Greetings from an enthusiastic Firefox user.
Hereby I give back from what I got from years of good browsing.
The best review I have ever received, I sincerely appreciate your feedback. If you would like to post this on the github issue page it would be easier to discuss there as here i can only give one reply.
I also am working on Profilist v2.0 and am nearing full Windows beta, here is a youtube screencast of v2.0 it fixes the delete issue you mention here: https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/issues/15#issuecomment-111672269
I like your MODE addon idea very much and feel it would be a great addon. I like to keep addons focused and simple so I'll do this as a seprate addon please. I created the repository and wiki page, if you get a chance can you please fill out the wiki page with all your ideas and hopes for this addon, I can use that as a guide when creating/designing the addon: https://github.com/Noitidart/MODE/wiki/MODE

Noté 4 sur 5 étoiles
its a very good extension , but i would like to hide the + button , also if using custom profile folders somewhere on your disks you need to set them first before installing this extension, moving folders afterwards somehow breaks it and it cant find the profile
Thanks for this review.
About custom folders: If you move it, doesn't the default firefox profile manager not see it as well? But you're right I should prompt at least that a profile was there but could not be found and ask user to tell where it was moved to or if they want to consider it deleted. This will also allow users to drop in a folder on their computer from antoher computer and add to the existing profiles. Good idea you have there. Post up a topic at https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/issues and we can discuss more, come up with some creative ideas.
About hiding the "Create new profile" button ("+" button) I don't have any stats on that, but maybe we can get it somehow, like set up Profilist with Telemetry and an option to hide it and see how many people use it.

Very slick and easy to use. A very nice update to profile switching. This should be build into FF.
However, the rename and delete behavior is unintuitive. Maybe there could be a profile manager link in the list as well.
Thanks Joe! I definitely agree with you on the rename and delete thing. I'm working on v1.3 right now which changes that.
You can follow along with how its turning out on the github issues tracker. This issue is #21 and an alpha image is there. I'll update with a more recent image today :)

Excellent addon. Does exactly what it says on the tin, even going so far as to offer to automatically install on new profiles.
Thanks for the review, the autoinstall of Profilist on new profile made my life much easier. Installs while you are offline as well.
