This is unfortunate because I would like to use Mozilla on different machines but have the profile data on a single, shared, network drive or on a different drive for a clear separation of data and program files. Two options come to mind: 1. Let me specify a folder where all of the profiles are located, each with their own subfolders, etc. for instance //HAL9000/Shared/Program data/Mozilla profiles/ 2. Let me specify a location for each profile. For instance //HAL9000/Shared/Program data/Mozilla profiles/user1. This is the way Netscape 4.x worked. I assume a registry key would be the way to go on Windows. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Not a reproduction issue, but an architecture problem.

When you create a profile with the Profile wizard, you can choose any location you want for the profile - even a network drive *if* that drive has already been mounted. What's missing here?
I must have missed that because I tend to convert older profiles. These seem to just get placed in the default location. I suppose a 'move' option in the profile manager would fix that. Or an extra step in the conversion dialog that asks where the converted profiles should go. I trust that if you specify a location that already has profile data, it just uses the existing stuff. Sorry that I didn't investigate fully before filing the bug. Oscar
