Perfect for multiple profiles Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Use to switch between multiple concurrent profiles. Also use Session Manager to manage/group multiple backup sessions(tabs and tab groups) within each profile. On top of that have Tab Groups re-enabled via add-on, and finally use Tab Groups Helper to group and manage multiple tabs and tab groups. All working well together, but disable automatic add-on updates as it is a finely tuned setup. Better to update to newer add-on versions after they have been well and truly tested.
Each profile's cookies are unique? Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I use two profile to access two accounts in a website and run imcaros. I've two different proxies for each profile.Does each profile's cookies are unique? Can the website find I'm using 2 accounts at same time?
Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Best plugin for changing profiles fast. Profiles are a great way to prevent Firefox crashes due to loading up too many extensions. I created seperate profiles for Work, Shopping, News, Research, etc. Thanks Paolo - I appreciate your work!
Awesome addon with 1 minor annoyance Rated 4 out of 5 stars
When opening links it still doesn't use the current open instance of Firefox and will frequently launch using my other profile instead. Sometimes I even get the 'firefox is currently running but not responding' error message when I clearly have a working instance open.
There is an option called "Open profile loading the current page". I have no idea what this means or what it does. When I enable it, it doesn't seem to do anything?
Great for restoring profiles with FEBE in Linux Rated 5 out of 5 stars
It was looking like a super annoying shell operation to do this in linux, this addon made it easy! Good as I am solely running on a LiveCD distro since my boot drive died.
fantastic ! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Now I can have my personal and work profiles open at the same time. Absolutely essential and great. Thanks !
Unmissable Rated 5 out of 5 stars
A plugin you can't do without if you need to work with different profiles, like private and work. It works great.
tab tooltip problem Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Like the previous reviewers I see the same problem.
I like to add, that I use "Tab Mix Plus". Maybe there is a unwanted interference.
replace tooltip for tab Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Like the previous review I noticed that this addon replaces the tooltip for tabs. When you put your mouse on a tab it should display its full name but with this addon enabled it just says "current profile: [profilename]". Hope this gets fixed soon.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.4).
Rated 4 out of 5 stars
For some reason, this extension has started replacing the tooltip for each tab with the name of the current profile.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.4).
Pretty good! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
I like that we can put the profile switcher button anywhere. The settings were fixed in a recent update! awesome.
I just wish we could get a list of current profiles in a drop down menu as soon as we press the button, but instead I have to click on it and then "Launch another profile" and then select the one I want.
Keep it up!
I can't live without Rated 4 out of 5 stars
I need it everytime I install Firefox, to be able to load only some addons according to what I'm currently doing (images, videos, programming, etc). But why, oh why, this addon doesn't show the name of the profile?This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.2).
Bug v. 1.7.2 Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Su Thunderbird 38.2.0 (Win7 Ultimate x64) la versione 1.7.2 si installa ma il pannello delle opzioni non funziona (non vengono salvate le modifiche).
Installando la versione 1.7.1 e poi aggiornando alla 1.7.2, invece, il tutto funziona correttamente.

top shelf Rated 5 out of 5 stars
innovative, intuitive, easily an instant favorite. great for troubleshooting if you tend to run firefox with a lot of addons, simply load up a clean profile alongside the current one from the drop down menu on the button, doesn't get any better than that!This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.2).
Nice to see improvements Rated 1 out of 5 stars
Well, something were fixed, at least the profiles are visible in the icon's context menu on PM-25.5. It's nice.
1) the Preferences dialog does not show the present values but only "initial" on every dialog opening
2) the previous negative reviews (being awaited for an improvements and consequent rating rising) WERE REMOVED from the review page (but still visible in profile, suck it, liar)
Absolutely great add-on Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Great add-on. And the new version 1.7.2 works again with FossaMail. Many thanks to the developer Paolo for this great work.This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.7.2).
Could not use FF, resp. TB without it !! Rated 5 out of 5 stars
ProfileSwitcher is one of my top10 Add-ons. Should be integrated in FF, resp. TB.
Great Thanks to Paolo "Kaosmos" for this Add-on and for keeping it uptodate !!
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Fantastically wonderful add-on that I have found use for because of sites being broken because of an undiagnosable bug in my profile.
Example: A facebook game does not let me send gifts to a certain player on my normal profile. But on a fresh profile, it does. So I switch to that profile when I feel like playing the game.
This next bit is the limitation: I would like to do the exact same for YouTube (which refuses to let me write or vote on comments with my normal profile). But the inconvenience comes in that only for this profile do I want to open up the window that my normal profile is currently on. That is a setting in the addon. But that would make my other profile, the facebook game profile, a hassle to use. I currently have it go to the home page which I've set to the facebook game's URL.
I'd love to have the best of both worlds by deciding which profiles I want to "continue on this site" or just begin where I left off on that profile.
