My issue is about how easy can it be to use two profiles in Windows. It has two parts. The first part seems impossible (but I'll discuss it anyway) and the actual question is mostly about the second part.

1) Having different taskbar icons for different Firefox profiles

This seems impossible as it requires different AppUserModelIDs (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd378459%28v=vs.85%29.aspx), as explained here: "You're right. What you need is for each Firefox profile instance to have a different AppUserModelIDs. But this involves patching the Firefox code and building on your own or possibly writing a custom app that will launch Firefox with under a forced ID. Either way, there is no simple solution." (at https://superuser.com/questions/325483/how-can-i-set-different-taskbar-icons-for-firefox-profiles-in-windows-7#comment353345_325526)

So that first part is unsolvable unless one is willing to run two different versions of Firefox (which are two different browsers for any purpose). If not (if one just wants to have two different profiles on any single version of Firefox), then the AppUserModelID will always be the same and Windows will always group them as belonging to the same app, which is neither Windows' fault nor Firefox's.

Since part 1 is impossible, I'd like some help working on part 2, at least.

2) Having secondary profile(s) as entries in Firefox's jumplist

There's no use pinning shortcuts for secondary profiles to the taskbar, as they might open these profiles but will never indicate whether they are open or not. So, as only one (the main) shortcut for Firefox will ever be used, I'd like to have secondary profile(s) as entries in its jumplist. Can it be done? If yes, how?

(I know there are third party jumplist tools, but AFAIK they create new jumplists with custom items in them, not actually editing softwares' original jumplists. If I am wrong, please do point tools that accomplish this.)

After my Firefox took a 'ninja update' I was not able to keep the cache clear and even though it was set to clear my cache on exit when i would open a fresh instance of firefox it would have items in the cache. nothing I would do would correct this even completely removing Firefox, the profiles, and reinstalling it. Reinstalling it is turning out to be my biggest mistake. Instead of the version 63 installing, which is what my installer was for the installer is only installing the most recent buggy version My version 63 had updates turned off, it should not have taken an update but it did even though the updates were turned off FOR security. I even had the registry set to block from HKLM When I am 'browsing' the internet I am logged into my machine with a user account that can't even make any changes. The current version (76.0.1) is having the same problems that plagued me before after this 'ninja update', the cache will not fully clear. When I open firefox it is showing it has items cached. There should be NOTHING in the cache when it opens, I do not have a home page set, there are no links set to open at startup and no connections should be made. The popup blocker is not only not blocking any popups it is opening them in new windows The machine does not have a virus or malware. Why is firefox so insecure now? The whole idea of using firefox was to be using a secure browser and just a browser it is not supposed to be integrated into the operating system it is not supposed to be interacting with the operating system it is supposed to be an internet browser. Without the ability to prevent this automatic communication and block unwanted traffic from it we may as well be using Internet Explorer, Edge or Chrome. How do we install one of the older more secure versions of Firefox without it automatically updating at the time of the install? How do we actually block the automatic communication? How do we block popups as the popup blocker does not work at all? (it worked beautifully in version 63) How do we get it to clear the cache at exit and open with the cache at 0?

Firefox hangs up several times randomly each day. Just says waiting for whatever site and I lose internet access. Occasionally I get an exception breakpoint error message.

You said this (attached), not long ago. It doesn't work w/ ff60. I will not upgrade until/unless you tell me how to do this in ff60 -- I don't give a **** how much more secure it is (deck chairs on the Titanic, y'know...).

You broke it -- you fix it.

I can' specify anything that might have triggered this, but that's because I don't recall entering any "shady" websites. One day I simply noticed that the borders of videos were practically microscopic in size From facebook to youtube, trying to change a video's volume of length has been a chore as it's incredibly difficult to work with options that are in minimal size.

I will be browsing a site that I use often. When I click a link I will be redirected to an unrelated site. Sometimes it is a gaming site, Sometimes a porn site. A few times it was a site with an alarm that I was being watch and tracked and should use a link to correct the problem. Sometimes I can use the "Back" button to return to my previous site, sometimes I have to close the tab and start again.

My bookmarks always work correctly. Some sites never have this problem. Others have it occur from their sites 30%-40% of the time.
