So if you want later to change which profile you are in.
Close all Firefoxes

Go back to the run prompt.
What you have typed in previously should still be in the run Window, so no need to retype.
When you are in Profile manager select the profile that you want to use and hit start Firefox.
You will then be in the Profile of your choice.


Once you are in a particular Profile you can always use your usual Firefox icon to restart Firefox.
You will always remain in the same profile doing that until you change your profile again in the Profile manager.

You can also rename your present profiles following the prompts, to help clarify which is which, and also, but it is good to be careful, delete any profile you wish.
