You can have multiple Firefox profiles, each containing a separate set of user information.

Note:
Using multiple profiles and profile management are advanced features intended primarily for extension developers. Unless you are an advanced user or are troubleshooting a specific problem with Firefox, you should avoid using multiple profiles.

Okay here we go:
01. Close your Firefox.

02. Now Go To Start –> Run or use Win+R keys and type this:

You can optionally choose where to save your profile data, just click on Choose Folder… and choose the location , which is useful if you plan on exporting your data and settings to another computer or setup in the future. And finally click on Finish.
