Yes. Using different profiles to troubleshoot problems is always a good
idea. My point in giving you the link was your "BE WARNED" statement...
See the little 'Don't ask at startup' box? Unchceck it when you are
using a test profile, that way you'll get the option to select the
profile when you restart firefox. You can check it again when you are
finished testing.
