I know this is an obscure question but it would save time typing it all in each time.

I would like to create a windows shortcut to launch the profile manager like so:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe -profilemanager" - but it says "the name specified in the target box is not valid. Make sure the filename and path are correct." It works fine without the -profilemanager part.

Maybe it would have to be a batch file I'm not sure.

Hi

I am a Linux user so this may not work for you, but you may want to try:

C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P

I hope that this helps.

No I tried that one already but it has a problem with the -profilemanager part.

It worked great, thanks very much Seburo (I had to add a double quote at the start though).
