I have Firefox 68 ESR as x64 installed on systems. When i switch to x86 a new profile is generated which is named default-esr-1. Is there a way to prevent firefox from creating a new profile when switching from FF 68 ESR x64 to FF 68 x86? I mean there is already an esr-profile, so why create another one?

Thank you very much!

Firefox68 ESR uses a dedicated profile just like Firefox 67 and later on desktop do that is locked against a specific installation directory. 64-bit Firefox 68 ESR is installed in a different folder than the 32-bit version, so Firefox will refuse to use the same profile and instead will create a separate profile.
