Combine Friendbar with Firefox Profile

Hello folks,
One more funny tip for today .

Friendbar(https://addons.update.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/10223?lang=en-US):
This add-on will display all updates of your twitter and facebook accounts. You can search on twitter from the same toolbar. You can also change settings like (the update time, the number of latest updates, etc.).

The link with Firefox profile Manager ?

You may not want to always see updates when working or maybe the currrent firefox profile (we use the default profile when none is created) has too much extensions.

So what you can do is to create a new firefox profile before installing the add-on.

Don’t cry i’ll show you how to do it ok 🙂 ?

1- Start firefox with the ‘-ProfileManager -no-remote’ option

(windows) “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -ProfileManager -no-remote
(Linux) > firefox -ProfileManager -no-remote

2- Create a new profile (mine is called the social_boy :-))

3- Go to the add-on page and install it. You’ll need to restart the browser.

4- Create a shortcut to your new profile
(windows) “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -P social_boy -no-remote
(linux) > firefox -P social_boy -no-remote

(change social_boy with your new profile name).

Now that you know how to do it you can cry 🙂
