    Firefox / Netscape

    I have used Netscape for many years, and am currently using version 8. I almost went to v.9, but after installing it and trying to find where to set up the profiles like in v8, I gave up and went back to v8. Now comes the demise of support for Netscape (March 1) and I don't want to have unsupported software on my computer. In looking at Firefox, I noted some striking similarities to I.E. 7 Pro, which is my main browser. I am pleased with that. I read through the Firefox web site and will probably install this afternoon.
    My question to you Firefox users, is: "Is there a place to set up user profiles?" In Netscape I have two profiles: Me, and Everyone Else. That is what I am looking for.
    Thanks John

    Try starting here to see if this helps: Managing profiles

    (I've moved your post to where I think it'll get the best "lookers.")

    Yup that does help, however I don't see anything in there about password protecting profiles. Can that be done, again like in Netscape?
    Thanks John

    Password protecting profiles is not a built in feature. For options see Protecting the contents of the profile - browser - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
