Where does Selenium WebDriver (a.k.a Selenium 2) get the anonymous profile that it uses when it opens FirefoxDriver? If it used the default for Firefox, %appdata%/roaming/mozilla/firefox/profiles, then if I were to disable a firefox plugin, it should be disabled for Selenium WebDriver also, so why isn't it?

While using Firefox in Selenium WebDriver 3.0, it will start a default profile automatically.

But, you can create your own profile and you can name it according to your choice.

Then you can use the below code:

 Profiles profile = new Profiles();

 FirefoxProfile fprofile = profile.getProfile("MyProfile");

 WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(fprofile);

Using this your Firefox Profile will start with a new profile always. You can change the settings according to your choice.
