    Using the Profile manager will allow you to have different Firefox
    Profiles with completely different Firefox settings, Themes,
    Extensions, passwords and so on.

    Start Menu>Run and type in:
    firefox.exe –profilemanager
    Make sure that you uncheck where it says “Don’t ask at startup”.
    Then you may create as many Profiles as you wish.

    To get back to your default Profile, open the Profile Manager as
    explained above and simply select your default Profile and you’ll
    be good to go.
