Almost there thanx! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is exactly what firefox is missing to compete with Chrome. It would be awesome if you could make it more like chrome where you could have a toolbar button or a picture to select to change profiles :)

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.6.0.3.1-signed). 

The toolbar button is already available: follow these instructions https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/customize-firefox-controls-buttons-and-toolbars#w_how-do-i-customize-or-rearrange-toolbar-items and drag the "Profiles" button on your toolbar

I was doing it with AutoHotkey before this. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Works great but would it be possible to actually preload the profile first to make it look almost seamless?

Maybe altering the one window mode then running it hidden until loaded then set it back.

Either way the add-on is great def worth trying if you change profiles a lot.

Всё хорошо, но... В отличии от предыдущей версии, "пропал" русский язык.

Does exactly what is in its name Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This addon is minimal yet very functional. One click of your mouse in the File menu allows you to switch a profile.

One nitpick is that you need to go into Open Profile Manager and select a mode in the submenu to create a new profile. It seems they could have a create profile and ask for the mode later, or just link to the profile manager and popup a mode dialog or similar. Menu items seem a little wordy, but it's a minor observation when the actual functionality is solid and once you have profiles up, extremely easy to manage.

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

For me a must have addon. Recently I've had small but annoying issues. When clicking a link in e.g. an email, I get an error message "Firefox is already running", instead of just openeing the link in the active profile (it used to). Also an option to choose defailt profile would be great.When theese things work again this will be a five star without doubt.ThanksAndreas - windows 8/firefox aurora

EDIT: Saw the changelog (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/profileswitcher/versions/)- and this is apparently a mozilla bug - and the develop has tried - so five stars is appropropriate I guess :-)

I was disappointed with firefox for not beings able to change profiles easily. Thanks to your extension now, firefox is better than chrome in this aspect also.

Not opening in Current Profile Rated 4 out of 5 stars

I would give this a five, but I have a huge productivity hassle because it opens the newest profile instead of the currently running profile. Paolo, I noticed that on August 3rd 2013, in reply to Thomas Sisson you promised to fix this in the next update, but that has not happened. I have 1.5.0.6

Исправления для 1.5.0.5 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

В версии 1.5.0.5 нужно после установки изменить следующие параметры в about:config
profileswitcher.onload_reset_noremote > false
profileswitcher.enable_new_instance > false
Все сразу начинает правильно работать

Ein super AddOn. Leider funktioniert die Version 1.5.0.5 nicht. Es wird immer nur das aktuelle Profil ein weiteres Mal geöffnet.

Bravo! (And some ideas) Rated 4 out of 5 stars

First thank you very much. This feature is expected by many people for a long time, I guess!

Some ideas :
+ A bugtracker (github?) to have a place to get involved and submit ideas.
+ Bug: The "titlebar" option doesn't seem to work on my nightly 26 (as it's the only way to make difference between windows)
+ Affect an icon by profile (or a color for beginning).
+ Impact firefox's window icon according to the profile icon/color (as in Chromium)
+ Merge the buttons with the "new private window" in the menu as it's globally the same purpose.
+ Add an entry in the context menu of links to open it in a window of another profile (merged with the "open in link in a new private window" maybe).
+ Add a button to share the "sync" configuration between profiles.
+ Switch to the window of another profile if it's already launched (currently the "Firefox is already running, but is not responding..." dialog is opened).
+ Install Profileswitcher automatically on new profiles created through this excellent extension.

Anyway, one word : OTTIMO, EXCELLENT, GÉNIAL, WUNDERBAR, MERCI!!
Hu! There's more than one word now! :P

PS : With only a few of this features, it will deserve the last star (and a sixth one with all). ;)

Great extension Rated 4 out of 5 stars

This is a great extension, deserving a frequent need.

As an addition, it would be useful to allow profile switching from the developer bar (with a command such as "profileSwitch <profname> [(boolean)quit current profile]")

I'd love to try to add this functionality myself, but I was not able to find the sources…

Great but ... Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Thanks for creating an add-on for a feature that should have been built into all Mozilla products. There are variations of programs available for MS Windows that attempt to do this. Many of us don't use Windows, and the sources are questionable.

My suggestion would be to replace -no-remote with -new-instance. This would fix the issue of not opening links with the running instance of Firefox. If the user chooses to keep separate instances of Firefox running rather than closing the currently running one, links would still be opened by the first instance by default (the operating system shouldn't matter).

You can set this as the default action. In a later version, you can add an option to change the default behavior, or choose the behavior in the dialog box, or both.

I'll probably hack the code myself, but this issue keeps me from giving a higher rating.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.5.0.4.1-signed). 

This a great suggest!
I will implent it in the next update, maybe the best solution is to use -new-instance as default behaviour for Firefox/Thunderbird 13 or higher, giving the user the possibility to switch to the old "-no-remote" if s/he prefers.
Thanky you for pointing this!

Eine der besten Möglichkeiten mit mehren Profilen gleichzeitig zu arbeiten. Mit diesen Add-ons ist es möglich schnell und einfach Profile zu Kopieren, neue anzulegen und auch zu löschen. Für Browser Spieler dürfte interessant sein das man mit wenigen Klicks in ein Profil zum Browser Spielen wechseln kann.
Achtung der Profil Switcher muss in jeden Profil installiert werden zwischen den gewechselt werden soll, da sonst nicht zurück gewechselt werden kann:

Ottimo Rated 5 out of 5 stars

di Paolo "Kaosmos" (Sviluppatore) il July 7, 2013 · link permanente

Puoi avere lo stesso comportamento anche con la versione 1.5.0.4 mettendo la preferenza extensions.profileswitcher.onload_reset_noremote a false.
Purtroppo non si può avere un comportamento adatto alle esigenze degli utenti in tutte le circostanze, per un limite intrinseco a Gecko

Capisco perfettamente...e grazie mille!!! Nel modo da te suggerito ho risolto ^^

Thank you very much for this. I relied on Chromes excellent profileswitcher and this extension made it possible for me to go back to firefox. Two requests: (1) In chrome ctrl+shift+m (on windows) opens a dropdown lists with available profiles. A similar keyboard shortcut option would be fantastic!

looks great (maybe when we hover on the icon user the "Current profile: " is not needed, the profile name could be enough.

I use different profiles for work and home. This tool gives you fast access to the hidden, but built-in profile manager within Firefox. Very handy!

Bug with last Version ! Rated 1 out of 5 stars

Switch from Firefox-Profil A to Profil B( Profil A closed), open Link in Thunderbird.
I have 2 windows: Firefox Profil A and B !
TB-Link opening in Window with Profil A, thats not correctly !
Edit: No, with 1.5.0.4 Version same problem !

Hopefully this should be fixed in 1.5.0.4 version. To try it, you must install the latest version in all your profiles.
