User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Win98; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 I currently use mozilla as my default browser in Win98-SE (my current default OS). It does not support get-right as an FTP client, thus I have been forced to install Netscape7 to get this feature. I wish to use a differing set of profiles/preferences for Netscape, but it insists on using the Mozilla profile/preferences. I set Netscape's prefs the way I wish it to act, and when I went to use Mozilla it insisted on using the prefs I had just set in Netscape (loosing all my bookmarks in the process.. ARGH!). Additionally, I have been unable to get the two to use separate folders to store their prefs/profiles in. Added further, I have WinXP-Pro installed on the D:\ partition, and when I installed a separate Mozilla there, it insisted on using the prefs/profiles from C: partition! I do not yet know if the prefs I stored there have been changed.. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Install Mozilla on C: (Win98-SE) and set the default preferences the way you wish. 2.Install Netscape on the same partition. It defaults to the same prefs set in Mozilla. Reset Netscape default preferences to what you wish IT to use, including storage in the Netscape\ folder. Exit Netscape. 3. Open Mozilla and find it has changed its default preferences to those just reset in Netscape. Note that bookmarks in Mozilla have now been lost! (ARGH!) 4. Reset Mozilla default preferences. Save them to new directory (on same or different partition) and exit. 5. Boot Netscape and find it has changed defaults to compliance with Mozilla! Actual Results: Mozilla and Netscape are different browsers! (YES I am aware they use the same engine.) Yet they insist on using the same set of default preferences/profiles. They also insist on using a common directory to store them.. Expected Results: Allow Mozilla to use a different set of default profiles/preferences than Netscape, and store them in a separate folder. The 2 browsers also insist on using the same directories for cache and histories. This becomes mildly annoying when the 2 browsers are used for different purposes, and you go looking for the last site visited in Netscape but find you must go through 3 days worth of surfing in Mozilla! There also seems to be no differentiation between the 2 browsers within the history list..
You must create one profile for each browser. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 107694 ***
