Yes. However, each program must be placed in its own folder in the Programs Folder.

Also, each needs to use its own profile as some things are not compatible.

Sync can be used to share data between these profiles.

Fred this is a Mac OSX user and not on Windows as you can see in OP.


Installing multiple versions on Mac OS X is basically dragging the Firefox application out of the DMG file to the desktop and rename the folder. You can drag the renamed Firefox application folder to the Applications folder like you would normally install Firefox.

You need to use the terminal to create a new profile for that version. http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_Manager https://support.mozilla.org/kb/Managing+profiles

Make sure that no profile is selected as the default to make the Profile Manager show when you start Firefox. You can check that in the profiles.ini file. http://kb.mozillazine.org/profiles.ini_file
