    How to open Profile Manager in Firefox 57


    Whenever I 'Run' firefox.exe -F with FF57 installed it just goes to a blank FF screen. I've also use -profilemanger in additon to -F.

    Does FF57 require something different?

    Thank you

    Thanks for the try but all it does is to open FF to a blank page like the others.

    Do you have more than one profile and is Firefox open?

    This is the shortcut I had pinned to my Start long before the update to 57 (in fact, It's been there since 2015) . It still works for 57.

    "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p

    As Edwin points out, Firefox must be closed before you can run the Profile Manager.

    Thanks to Edwin and Bree. I had forgotten that FF had to be closed to be able to use the profile manager.
