On a set of machines configured for group usage, running mozilla does not save profile information. The problem is that my "C:\WINNT\Profiles\*user*\Application Data" directory is deleted after I log out. Now, these machines have a HOME directory mapped so that I can save my profile. What I would like to have is a way that I can start mozilla and pass in the directory location of my profile. Conrad, do you have objection to this?

This is a feature that is needed on all platforms and OS. The current solution under linux to have the profile in .mozilla is not a good one in many situation either. There should be a command line option that just lets users specify a new profile directory and this option should be possible when running the browser, the profile manager or the profile wizard. Moving the profile to a different location will often be needed in corporate environemnts where disk quotas, fast access drives, network drives, backup schemes and other stuff is involved. Another good use would be when a preinstalled mozilla is distributed with a CDROM and a preconfigured profile. (this would require that mozilla os able to handle read-only profiles though and should probably be enabled by another option)
