I have looked to find a way to be able to run, independently, both v56 and Quantum on the same computer. The solutions I find refer to installing, in a separate folder, a portable version which apparently no longer exists as any search for a portable version on the Mozilla website finds zero results. Can this be done some other way and, if yes, how. I am loathed to give up v56 and lose all the add-ons that I rely on and for which no decent alternatives exist in Quantum. Thx

I want two separate icons, one for each profile I run.

I am running Firefox Quantum version 62 on a Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS.

One copy of Firefox is barebones and the other runs all kinds of add-ons, extensions and preference settings etc.

At the moment when I execute Firefox, the Profile Manager opens, I need to select which profile I want to use.

I want two separate icons, one ofr each profile, bypassing the Profile Manager.

What are the "Target" commands that will launch each?

Hello, I will include a screenshot with the details. I am on Windows 10 October Update. I appear to have 2 versions of firefox on my laptop as you will see in the screenshot, they are both x64, one is version 57 and the other is version 64. Can i remove the older version (57) without it affecting the other version i have installed (64) ? And i would like to know how or why this has happened ? Why do i have 2 versions of Firefox instead of 1 ?

If you can help, can you talk me through it step by step ?
