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.

Does anyone know if an extension for this was ever developed?
