"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -no-remote -P Ravish

6) Hit ENTER the profile will start in new context!

(Note that the path C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\ may change as per your installation directory.)

You always have to run the 5th step to use a new fierfox page for new account or you can skip it by doing following steps:-

1) Right-click on Mozilla Firefox icon on your desktop and select copy option from right-click menu.

2) Then paste it at your desktop or any other place like.

3) It may appear with name like Copy of Mozilla Firefox, change it to some convenient name which you like, or else skip this step.

4) Now again right-click on the new Mozilla Firefox icon you just made and click on Properties option in right-click menu.

5) Go to Shortcut tab in properties window.

6) In Target you may find –
“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”
change it to
“C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -no-remote -P Ravish
