This extension makes easier to use more profiles in Firefox and Thunderbird.
It adds in the File menu two new items to start another profile or the profile manager. From the extension's preferences, you can choose what to do when you launch another profile (close the one in use, don't close it, ask every time - If you choose to run the profile manager in safe-mode, the current profile will be always closed).
It allows also to restart the profile enabling the log of the connections (on Thunderbird) and to open the links with another profile (on Firefox).
Moreover it adds the name of the profile in uso in the titlebar (on Thunderbird) and/or as an icon available for the statusbar and the toolbar.
At the present the extension is localized in italian, english, german, french, polish, portoguese, hungarian, dutch, polish, swedish, chinese, serbian. Some locales could be not complete. If you are interested in traslating the extension in other languages, please do it through Babelzilla projectNOTE:
