Open multiple Firefox profiles at the same time

Normally you can open one Firefox profile at a time. However you can open multiple profiles at the same time with the following trick.

Go to Run dialog box (Win+R), type
firefox -no-remote. It shows the profile manager dialog box. You select a profile. Thats it, you have done.
Otherwise you can create a bat file ( a file with the extension .bat) on desktop, add the following line in the file

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

Whenever you double click on the file, the profile manager will be opened.

If you are using Firefox 1.5, paste the following code in the bat file (Thanks to
the edmeister).

@echo off
set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1
start "" "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p
set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=0
