Hi all here, I have a problem


I have two users both using Firefox.

The profiles (history, favorites bar, favorites menu, downloads location and history6, etc...) are different.

How can I make them both the same?

My goal is to save a document with user1 and switch to user2 and have that document show up in User2's documents. 


Same with downloads.

If this more a Windows 10 issue rather than a Firefox issue then I would still like to know:

    If I am surfing with user1 and switch to user2.  I want the browski4ng history to show up in user2's history.


Thanks for your time,

you could use a program like "free file sync" and sync the specific folders in the user profiles.

it would automatically keep them the same but you would have to set it up on both profiles so it will operate both ways.


you can sync the documents, downloads, favorites.  i don't know if history would work or not.

You might be able to use the Firefox Profile Manager and store the profile in a folder where both users could access it.  The major issue with this is that both users can see and access anything the other user did in Firefox.

If ever there were a reason to use shared cloud storage, this is it.


Google Docs, OneDrive, and the list goes on and on allow you to put something in one place and have it accessible to all the people that need to access it.
