Few weeks ago, we discussed how we can create a new user profile in Firefox using the inbuilt profile manager. Profile manager really makes it easy to create separate profiles but it doesn’t make managing or switching between them convenient. You need to close Firefox, go back to the profile manager, select the other profile and then open it. Too many steps for someone who frequently uses different Firefox profiles for different tasks.
So today we will tell you about a tiny add-on called Switchy (for Firefox of course) using which you can easily manage your various Firefox profiles right from your browser toolbar. You can treat Switchy as a decent front end of the Firefox Profile Manager to create and manage different profiles on Firefox.
Assuming that you are working on Firefox, open the Switchy add-on page and add it to your Firefox. Once your browser restarts you will see the Switchy button at the top right corner of the screen. Let’s start with creating some profiles.
