I am using Multi-account Containers and I have two Gmail accounts. One is a personal account. The other is for work. I get them into their own container but when I bookmark them to put them on my toolbar, they both go under the same label that I have given to the last bookmark that I created. I have reversed them, deleted them and started over on the bookmark(s). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Phil, do they have different URLs? When you mention the same label, if you mean the text that appears on the Bookmarks Menu/Toolbar, you can customize the name/title of a bookmark after saving. If you are still on the bookmarked page, you can click the blue star in the address bar. Otherwise, you can right-click the bookmark and click Properties.

Was that it, or a different problem?

This did not solve the problem. I have one container called Main Email. The other one is Work Email. I have tried to change the name that is saved in the bookmark and it changes on the bookmark toolbar. When I change one, it changes both of them to the same shortcut on the toolbar. Only one shortcut shows on the toolbar because they are the same. Example: Right now both containers have the name of "Main Email" on the toolbar. I change the one bookmark from work to "Work Email" and the shortcut name changes to "Work Email" and it changes "Main Email" bookmark to "Work Email" as well. If it would have left the "Main Email" bookmark alone, that would be great. It would have put another name on the toolbar and that would be wonderful... but it won't do that. The emails are very similar. Do you think it only looks at the first six or 8 characters? Here are the emails. XXXXXXXX1@gmail.com and XXXXXXXX2@gmail.com. The Xs are the same (not all the same letter of course, if the first X represents an A on email 1, it also represents an A on email 2. Different letters for all Xs). Sorry this is so confusing. It's also frustrating. Thanks, Phil

Hi Phil, Firefox doesn't like duplicate bookmarks with the identical URL. Don't your mailboxes have different URLs once you log into them? I realize it could vary depending on the order signed in; I don't use Gmail enough to know the best way to do it.
