i have switched from chrome since past 1 month and firefox is just better. the only thing i did not find easy is the option for having multiple profiles to be used at ease, could be better if there was one to easily access seperate profiles for work and home

@jhirschFinally, someone from Mozilla is chiming in. Please save us from having to switch to Chrome by fixing Multiple Profiles in Firefox. Mozilla is losing Firefox users to Chrome! Booo!!! We have been extremely patient. Thank you for your efforts. Looking forward to what is to come in the next few weeks.

Thank you thank you @jhirsch !!!! I've had to switch back to chrome in the interim until Firefox has functional and feature-rich profiling. while you're working on this, adding in the ability to open links in the last used profile (in stead of just the default profile) would be a godsend. that was the straw that broke the camels back in my case. Every time I opened a link from my work app it would open in my personal profile (using nightly vs regular) and I just couldn't do it.

Very excited to come back to firefox!

Multiple Profiles Within the Same Browser

Create a new space similar to what Safari has but open it in the same browser with a 'Profile Tab' instead of it opening a separate browser for that specific profile. House the Profile Tab or Space in the drop-down or simply make a different color tab somewhere in the tab area next to the recent browsing drop down. Have the option of keeping all bookmarks or just some pertaining to that profile. This is a winner!

This is a really needed feature. I sometimes need to separate my history and bookmarks for personal things and other things. Or don't want to combine my accounts for same websites together. me and my brother want to switch easly our account

Similar idea here: shortcut for different profiles 

@radterrax if this aligns with your idea, we can merge the two threads together (and combine the kudos) - that way the conversation stays focused in one space, which is helpful when our product teams gather insights here. Just let me know 😃

@jhirschPlease overhaul how "open link in browser" works as well with this profiles update. I dislike that it just opens in whatever profile you most recently used profile switcher to open. I very much liked chromes implementation where it opens in the last profile used.

 

Ex: I use profiles A, B, and C. I usually use A which I open first, then open either B or C depending on which I end up needing first. Most of the time I want links yo open in A but occasonally I want them to open in B, hardly ever do I want to open them in C but half the time they do as that was the most recent to open.

 

Also, I really hope that we will get to have PFPs show up in the taskbar to show which profile is open and allow for pinning of that specific profile. Then when I have 2 profiles open in 1 desktop/kde_activity I can know which windows are what profile; or when I restart the PC, I can open the profile I want directly in each individual activity.

Great news! Please make it easy to share or move things between my profiles.
