User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.5b) Gecko/20030728 Mozilla Firebird/0.6.1 I use profiles extensively and like the idea of being able to switch profiles "on-the-fly". Mozilla 1.4 does offer something that will work. They have included a menu option on the Tools Menu called "Switch Profiles..." (see screenshot #1). This is great and is exactly what I need. However, Firebird does not have this option (see screenshot #2) and I have to shut down Firebird and restart it again with the -p flag. I do not want to use Mozilla because Firebird is too damn cool in all other aspects, so please don't tell me to switch and use Mozilla. I am looking to the Firebird developers to just add this piece of code and this option back into Firebird. Thanks. Here is a link to the screenshots = http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=13423 Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Expected Results: The "Switch Profiles..." option should have been left in Firebird like it is in the Mozilla Suite.
Confirming as a new RFE.

Actually the DOM Inspector offers this possibility. So it shouldn't be hard work to move this entry into the main menu.

After a discussion on IRC it's not clear for me if i should start to implement this. Has this feature a change to be checked in into the tree? If not i have to handle this as an extension. Ben, could you give me a statement? Thanks.
Sorry for spam. Ben, could you give a statement on comment 5 how to handle this feature?
Firefox is not going to expose profile manager or profile switching to the user in the UI. That it exists in the DOM Inspector is a bug, an artifact of dropping Seamonkey's DOM Inspector into Firefox. If you'd like to see UI for this, it's going to be as an extension.
