Not sure if palemoon is related to FF but if it is can i still use them side by side at the same time? Will there be a profile conflict if i do?

I don't know the specifics of WIN but on Mac there are two different profiles in two different directories.

/Users/<acct>/Library/Application Support/Pale Moon/Profiles/<random>.default

/Users/<acct>/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<random>.default

EDIT: I run FF and Palemoon at the same time.

FF 59.0.1 - FF 60b5 - FF 61a - Palemoon 27.6.2 - TB 52.6 - Mac OSX 10.13.3

They run side-by-side no problem on Windows. There, the PM profile is in C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Moonchild Productions\Pale Moon\Profiles. Not sure if PM will import your FF settings or not, but if it does all the better.
