Set up multiple Firefox profiles with different network connection settings.

Posted

Hi guys,

I hope one of you can help me. I would like to set up two different Firefox profiles, one for work and one for home. At work I have network proxy connection settings, but I don't at home. I did set up separate profiles successfully, but I noticed that the connection settings are shared between two profiles. This is a pain, because every day when I go to work and come back home, I must change my connection settings.

Is there a way to have multiple profiles with separate network connection settings? Or, maybe I just did something wrong.

Thanks in advance for your help! xoxo
