Try using a separate Windows Logon User Account. { LUA } https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17197/windows-10-set-up-accounts

That will keep everything you do on a shared computer in your own separate section. That includes a completely separate Firefox Profile, and separation of your data for other applications, too.

IMO, far better than creating and dealing with separate Firefox Profiles, as it is "automatic" and requires no specific of Firefox or any other application. It's almost like you and the other Windows Logon Users Accounts are each on their own computer, other than the not being able to use the PC while other users are using it.
