    Hi there,

    I'm attempting to create multiple Firefox browsers like this. Everything's running smoothly except that when I start up my browser it asks me to select which profile I want to run. Why is this happening and how do I make my browser named Profile1 just open profile1 and so on.



    Thanks :)

    My first guess is that path is not correctly written.

    Here is what you need to do

    Right Click on Mozilla Shortcut, click properties and ensure that Target is in format:

    "FIREFOX_PATH_DO_NOT_CHANGE" -no-remote -profile "PROFILE_PATH"

    Mine is "..Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -P profile1 -no-remote

    ^That is the syntax the tutorial said to use. Should I change it?

    Just save yours and try mine. Also, put profile path in comma if it's not in it.

    Appreciate you helping me. Is it "FIREFOX_PATH_DO_NOT_CHANGE" -no-remote -profile "PROFILE_1"

    or am I literally making the syntax "FIREFOX_PATH_DO_NOT_CHANGE" -no-remote -profile "PROFILE_PATH"

    Not literally. Literally it will be something like this:

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -no-remote -profile "C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\3csdaTvs.default"
