Feature request: Containers should be converted to Multi-Profiles to have useres on one Firefox Account

Can
Posted

Current containers allow us to seperate browsing history to some parts. But it's not enough for privacy at work in practice. For e.g. you can search something and suddenly it can suggest you a site from personal or something else nsw etc. Also the new tab highlights are combined with personal and work and the others. But if the containers converted to multi-profiles we could also use seperate browsing, customizing, etc. Unfortunately for this reason I have to use two Firefox Account. :/ and also unfortunately I can't use Firefox Lockwise, because my passwords seperated two Firefox accounts and I can only set one Firefox Account on my mobile phone. :/

If multi-profiles can set and switch easily on one Firefox Account, that would be awesome! Thanks in advance.

You can't separate data with multiple profiles and one Firefox Account . When you connect multiple profiles to the same account then these profiles will be merged. You can use multiple profiles (e.g. home/work) and connect them to separate Firefox Accounts each with their own email address. You would have to disconnect Lockwise from the account and reconnect to another account. I haven't checked whether this is possible and how many steps this takes. Maybe use a third profile with its own Sync account that has all the passwords and connect that profile to Lockwise. You can add new passwords to Lockwise on desktop. This is of course more work to keep the passwords up to date if you add a new password on either of the two other profiles, but is the only way to keep profiles separate.

I know that you said is only way to solve my problem and I've already use this one. But it's not user friendly. :/

Because of this I requested a feature from Firefox team. But now I learnt that it's not right place to talk about it. :)

Thanks for your help.
