Please go to the MDN (mozilla) link I gave.  Like anything, there's some 
reading on how to use the profile manager, but it's child's play 
compared to using a browser.
They have online help section to use the utility (which doesn't need 
There's also an article in Mozillazine knowledge base on creating 
profiles.  If one can't read & master the steps needed to do this, maybe 
they might shouldn't be creating multiple profiles, esp. to use in TBB.  
Just sayin'.

You use the menu options in the profile manager to create new profiles.  
About a 10 sec. operation, once you know basic menu options.  In the 
same way the native Fx profile manager does.
The native manager would also work, it's just that the stand alone 
manager from MDN has more features, flexibility.  It's not difficult 
(unless one refuses to read simple instructions).

One thing:  The MDN profile manager (or Firefox) has a known bug - which 
doesn't really bother anything.
When the manager is used to open a profile that's previously been 
*opened* (but is now closed), it will show a message that the profile 
you selected appears to be in use & starting Fx with it could damage 
Unless Firefox IS running, with the profile SELECTED,  the profiles 
aren't open & starting them doesn't damage anything.

The only time that might be the case, is if you actually had a running 
instance of Fx / TBB; in which case you'd see it running in Task Manager 
or equivalent running processes monitor in other OSes.
As long as [the profile you've selected] isn't started / running, the 
warnings about it in Profile Manager can be ignored.
