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.

The first question I asked when I started using multiple profiles was, when looking at a FF window how do I know what profile is in use. I am happy that I found profilist at mozilla.org. It adds a panel to the new Firefox Panel menu which shows the current profile. When you hover over this name it expands to show all profiles and "Create New Profile". Not only does it provide a clear visual of what profile is in use, but a user can easily create or use an existing profile to test userchrome, addons, or bring up a browser for a specifc purpose. As far as addons go, this is a need not a want.

I agree with the delete/rename feedback. I use the Create option but I manually rename and delete at this time. Maybe:
1) Change "Create New Profile" to: "Manage Profiles"
2) Only show the profiles (like they work now), and add a right-click on Profilist profile panels to Create, Copy, Rename, Delete
3) "Create New Profile" takes the entire row, divide it up: Create | Copy | Rename | Delete
4) Divide each profile row up: Profile_Name | Copy | Rename | Delete

I like #2 if it is possible to contain a context menu to Profilist panel. One, right-click is common UI and feels natural, and two, it takes less space (one less panel row) without giving up anything and it makes these features very clear. Otherwise, #1.

Thank you very much for your feedback. I have a large release for Profilist, I'm shooting for a mid-January release (v1.3). Here are all the issues I'm working on: https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/issues some of the issues I'm pushing to v1.4

For the delete/rename thing I have created slide out menus that expand to look like this: https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/issues/21#issuecomment-51437159

What do you think? I would really love to see your feedback in that topic and other issues there :)

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.

Great add-on. A KICK you in the behind donation has been made:)

Haha kick received

Great look, looking forward to updates Bewertet mit 3 von 5 Sternen

This extension looks great and most importantly handles switching in an intuitive and quick manner. However, I've had to deactivate it until an option to choose the default profile is added. I use Firefox at work and at home, and when I'm home I don't want my work profile to come up automatically every time (as it does now).

I have noted that this feature is in the works. Hope it is a priority! I will definitely increase my rating once this option is added.

So funny I was just working on the menu for setting the default profile :)

https://github.com/Noitidart/Profilist/issues/21 (see activity from an hour ago haha)

Pleas do share your input in that topic :)

The final result isn't looking exactly like that mock up its looking more like this: (submenu will be vis only on hover, its just in dev mode right now so its vis over all)

Thanks for the review :) It always gets me motivated.

Search is required Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Great add-on, it's very useful.
But if I have more than 20 profiles, I can not scroll the list to reach the last ones as they are cropped.
I suggest that you shorten the profiles list and add a search box with autocomplete feature.

===
How do I reply to the message below?
I obly see the "Report this review" link.

I think. scroll bar and wheel button scrolling are both inconvenient.
Opening a new tab looking similar to about:home page showing a caterorized list of available profiles would be much more convenient than a poping up menu. And a quick search box will be in its place.

I've just noticed an issue:
I can not start a nen copy of FF linked to another profile from the command line: "firefox -p Profile1" - it just re-opens the window with the current profile.

It's hard to reply in these sections. If you can make a topic at github.com/Noitidart/Profilist we can discuss there in a topic post format. Otherwise you have to just edit and then I have to keep checking here, as i don't get email notification on edits.

That about: tab is a great idea. It's actually really great and i want to land this feature sometime.

To run multiple profiles at one time you have to separate the processes. This is done by adding -no-remote to the command line arguments. So in your example it will be "firefox -p Profile1 -no-remote".

Hey man, what do you think if I alphabetized the profiles and allowed the wheel button to scroll. Adding a search field and scrollbars makes it very ugly and jam packed.

Great addon, it's like having a brand new Firefox.
Suggestion: Implement a security method to prevent accidental or intentional erasure of profiles.

This is the best profile add-on I've ever used! It would be better if you could add the option to change the order of the profiles that appear, but other than that, it's perfect!

Diese Bewertung wurde für eine vorherige Version des Add-ons (1.1.1-signed) abgegeben. 

Thanks man for the review! The profiles are ordered by creation date. So bottom most is oldest profile. The top most is the selected profile, but everything below it is in order of creation date.

What order were you hoping for?

feature request Bewertet mit 4 von 5 Sternen

Please add option to open the current page in the selected profile.

That sounds like an excellent idea. But something separate from this add-on. What do you think?

Bewertet mit 5 von 5 Sternen

I can't believe this hasn't created before! Who doesn't use more than one profile today? I have three that I maintain (work, home, laptop) and until I saw this add-on I did know I could create separate ones in FF.

Only wished I had seen it before I upgraded to FF 29!

Is it possible to copy or clone a profile?

Also, will it cause any problems to save the files to a dropbox folder? I am trying to move the majority of my files over to a cloud based drive.

Will renaming the profile from the Profilist program cause any problems after it has been completely set up?

Thank you for a great add-on.

Thanks Lostone for the review and questions.

Right now it isn't possible to do it via the addon. It sounds like a great idea though. Send me an email and I'll reach out to you when I start working on it.

I plan to keep the addon real simple, limited options.

Renaming is not a problem at all. All functions the addon does is safe.

I don't understand what you mean by saving files to a dropbox folder. There should be no problem with that at all. Shoot me an email though and we can talk about it. :)

easy2use addon for testing different profiles. Suggestion: add a feature to set an user-defined profile path other than the default directory.

Thanks Carlos for the review. I was thinking of adding it in the future. For advanced users was thinking of:
1) ctrl + clicking on "Create New Profile" will give them an option to use custom path
2) ctrl+clicking on a profile will launch it safe mode

Ctrl+Clicking is not so friendly though you know, maybe ill put tiny icons on the far end of the toolbarbutton, i don't know its all in brainstorming stages right now.

Before I get to that though I want to make the renaming and deleting of profiles inline, so no prompting.

Finally a nice way to switch profiles in firefox. It's neatly integrated to the new australis menu and shows all available profiles just having the mouse over the current profile (love that). If you want to keep things separated, this is the add-on for you.

Thanks fruchtiger for the review. I appreciate your bug report especially because its Linux. I wasn't able to test on Linux. We'll get this working.
