Hello, community,

Wondering if it's possible to have multiple profiles of Waterfox show in the taskbar, like how Chrome and Edge do it?

Thanks,

Shawn

Chosen solution

No. The Windows Task Bar does not do that. I have several versions of Firefox and what I did was to create shortcuts for each Firefox version and link it to its profile. Example;

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox_54\firefox.exe" -p Firefox_54

Note the -p switch.

Okay, thanks,

I figured I go to waterfox.exe - p or firefox.exe - p and then uncheck open this profile by default. So, it will always ask me which to use.

Thanks,

Shawn
