Switchy: Easily Create And Switch Between Profiles On Firefox Share
PDF Print E-mail

Firefox saves your information about bookmarks, passwords, and user preferences in your user profile; nothing but a set of files which saves all this information. While this makes perfect sense for a single-user scenario, having two different people share a computer will become a nightmare because of continuous conflicts with each others’ preferences. Switchy, a Firefox add-on, allows you to create new profiles with the option of adding your favorite URLS, and makes switching between different profiles a breeze.

After installation, the Switchy button is added right next to the the URL bar. Clicking this button opens a set of options, where you can open the profile Manager and change various parameters. When browsing a particular website, you can add it to any of your chosen profiles by using the Add this website to a profile button.


There are two basic options when you start Firefox. You can either choose to Work offline using a profile, or select Don’t ask at startup to allow Firefox to load the selected profile without prompting at launch.

The Switchy manger lets you add multiple websites to each profile. You can choose to start these websites at startup, or when set to exclusive, a notification bar will be shown when a website will be visited on other profiles.


Switchy is a multi-user-friendly add-on, offering better profile management and enhanced security. It can be grabbed at the link provided below.
