Windows 7: Set Firefox Profile Folder in Places Bar

Set Firefox Profile Folder in Places Bar

I'd like to set Firefox Profile Folder as an item in Windows Places Bar.

Common File Dialog Box - Customize Places Bar

The folder's name includes random characters assigned by Firefox.
Is there a way to set the item in the Places Bar to "Firefox Profile" (i.e. NOT "xyxyxy.default") without changing the folder's name?


Thank you.

Hello Yaron,

You might see how it'll work by creating a shortcut of the folder with a name you want, save the shortcut to where you want to keep it at, then use the shortcut's path in the places bar to see if it will display the shortcut name instead of folder name.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thank you Shawn. I appreciate your help.

I've tried that. Unfortunately Windows doesn't display the item at all.
