Good morning,

I managed to install and run Firefox, my favourite browser, at my job place. So far so good. But, in Windows 2000 we have been assigned a fixed amount of space for our profiles as users and it is too small for Firefox user profiles (and now that it comes, for some profiles and preferences of some other pieces of software as well).

I cannot change this amount of space. It's a corporate thing decided out of my reach.

Question: Is it possible to change the location where Firefox stores this profiles? I have plenty of space in my hard disk and I am almost the only person that uses it (besides, I don't care much about where the data are installed, as I erase my privacy data always when quitting).

Thanks in advance :)

Start up Firefox from the command line with the -p flag. This opens the profile manager that lets you create a new profile anywhere on the disk.
