in one desktop i may have 7 .. 20 or more firefox windows, operating from 4, 5 or 7 profiles.

for any window, i want to know what profile it is running from. but firefox will not tell you that. the help button only tells what build of firefox you have. i can find nothing pertinent in about:config.

for any firefox window, how can i find the profile it belongs to?

الحل المُختار

Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar. Change nothing here.

There are two messages to look for;

This profile is in use in another application = another Firefox using this

This is the profile in use = this is the profile that Firefox is using.

It is only going through 1 Profile. It would be impossible to figure that one out. What is it that you are trying to do ? What is the end result ?

i have a number of profiles, each of which i use for a different purpose. for example, some have proxies, some not. i usually am running numerous windows with different profiles, it is difficult not to get lost.

the 1st reply is incorrect.

for the 2nd reply, thank you very much. about:profiles i did not know about.

it were good if mozilla made the name of the current window's profile easier to get to, such as by putting that information in the help - over firefox menu item.
