Can I create multiple profiles and have them password protected?

We have a computer that gets shared between a few people but it uses a generic logon. However, individual people may want to use Firefox to check the email and things but don't want other people to get into their own stuff.

I know that I can create a profile for each person but I don't seem to see any way to set a password on the profile. Is there any way to do that?

With Firefox, the only password is the Master Password on the Password Manager.

Each user has a profile folder. And each may have several profiles.

What you may want to do is create a separate account for each user on the computer itself. Firefox will create a separate profile for each user.
