    Application auto launch: How to start Firefox with your profile

    Toa_Of_Justice

      I appreciate the ability to automatically launch an application whenever I connect to a certain wireless network ("Enable Intel connection settings" in Control Panel\Network and Internet\Manage Wireless Networks). However, when I choose to launch Firefox, it launches without my profile.

       

      I located the profile folder according to the directions at "How can I determine which profile Firefox 3 is currently using?". I was greeted with this error message upon trying to open the profile folder:

       

      System32Profile.png

       

      I tried to set my application path using a command line argument, but that resulted in a message indicating that my program path was invalid.

       

      My workaround was to create a batch file that started Firefox, then I set my application path to that batch file.

       

      On my Windows 7 x64 PC, the text of my batch file is (including quotes):

       

      "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe"

       

      Please let me know whether or not my workaround works for you.
