Greetings…Loving the Comodo Ice Dragon that i installed just today!
Got a question…In Firefox I am able to have two profiles , 1 for the wife and one for myself that way our bookmarks, history and add-ons are separate…
She has hers and I have mine…We have it set so that when either one of us open up FF it asks which profile we would like to access allowing us to select our Firefox ( her’s or mine) before it opens.
Beings Comodo IceDragon is based on Firefox I assume we can do the same? that being the case how do I access the Comodo IceDragon profile manager or profile editor?
Thank you for any assistance given
Hi and welcome JohnnyD,
You have a few options.
- Add the -p switch to the target field of CIDs shortcut.
This will open the profile manager at CIDs start-up giving you the options to edit/add/remove/select profiles.
Instructions in the link below for Firefox for an example.
Use the Profile Manager for Firefox
Your target field should be as follows for 32-bit
"C:\Program Files\COMODO\IceDragon\icedragon.exe" -p
Alternative is the following extension which will add the profiles and profile manager to CIDs context menu (Screenshot).
Note: If you use the ProfileSwitcher extension you will have to add CIDs executable to the ‘Executable path’ found in ProfileSwitchers options under Add-ons, Extensions in CIDs context menu.
Default path = C:\Program Files\COMODO\IceDragon\icedragon.exe
Open Windows start menu and type iceDragon.exe -p into the search box and select open.
Note: You can use the Run Command box if it is set to show in the start menu.

Thank you Captainsticks … I appreciate your time and your quick response
This was exactly what I was looking for…
Have a great day!
You are welcome Johnny and you also have a great day.
thought this was as good of a place as any to ask about running two separate instances of cid. if anyone wants to take a look at my previous thread i think they will probably figure out why. if not i think using a clean copy with the one i have already installed i can slowly buildup the clean to where i have the customized copy at and at the same time ferret out what is causing the issues with the customized version. so is there any way to run a untouched copy of cid while running the customized cid i have?
