Firefox Profile Directory

Ian-11
I wonder why Firefox profile is placed at
  Firefox\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles

Why not at a more simple and logical directory
  Firefox\Profiles

Ask the core Firefox developers - that's how they did it on Windows.

If you pay attention when you make the profile you can put it anywhere
you want.  At least if you use the ZIP, I don't know about the installer.

My preference is:
X:\MOZPROFILES\SMUSER1
X:\MOZPROFILES\SMUSER2
X:\MOZPROFILES\FFUSER1
X:\MOZPROFILES\FFUSER2
X:\MOZPROFILES\TBUSER1
X:\MOZPROFILES\TBUSER2

(user x might also be ISP x)

With:
SET MOZILLA_HOME=X:\MOZPROFILES
SET MOZ_PLUGIN_PATH=X:\MOZPROFILES\PLUGINS
in config.sys
