You'll want to create a new user on the computer. https://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-New-User-Account-in-Windows-Vista-and-7 can help you do that

Just a note, Windows Vista is no longer supported, and not safe to use. Please update to either Windows 7 or 10, buy a new computer, or switch to linux.

Another possibility is to use multiple profiles and use a desktop shortcut for each of you to start Firefox by adding -P "profile-name" to the target line in the shortcut *https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/profile-manager-create-and-remove-firefox-profiles *https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Command_Line_Options See also: *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Creating_a_new_Firefox_profile_on_windows *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Shortcut_to_a_specific_profile *http://kb.mozillazine.org/Using_multiple_profiles_-_Firefox
