Multiple Profile Accounts

Posted

I'm trying to set up multiple profile Firefox accounts on my new computer with Windows 7. I had multiple accounts set up on my old computer with Windows XP without a problem.

I am able to set up the multiple profiles in Firefox program manager, but when I open the first profile, it will not let me open a different profile after that... it only lets me open that first profile as many times as I want. I have read everything I can find online about this problem and I cannot solve it.

I have also tried using Multifox and I am having the exact same problem. I have Norton 360 set up on the computer. Can you please help me? I'm going crazy trying everything I can possibly do to set these accounts up and nothing is working. Please HELP!  :(

You need to have -no-remote in the Target line of the desktop shortcut for any Firefox Profile you launch after the first one.
