When working with multiple Fire
Fox profiles, no indication to user as to which windows are with which profile
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:22.214.171.124) Gecko/2009042316 Firefox/3.0.10 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2009042316 Firefox/3.0.10 (.NET CLR 3.5.30729) When using Firefox in a testing environment, or with development, I often use multiple profiles. Currently, although it is comparatively simple to start up with any given profile, and to start windows with additional profiles, there is no indication to the user about which instance is running against which profile. This would be very useful for debugging purposes for testers and other users who utilize multiple profiles in Firefox. Reproducible: Always
You can use the nightly tester tools extension (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/6543) to customise your title bar to include the profile that instance of fx is running.
Just a note, that I use the ProfileSwitcher add-on, and I configure it to put the current profile name in the bottom-left status area. https://nic-nac-project.org/~kaosmos/index-en.html#profname
