How do you run Firefox 52 and 60 at the same time? Old technology requires Firefox 52 to access, 60 does not work, so I need to run both.

I need to run Firefox 52 and 60 concurrently, since new sites don't need the legacy support and old technology does not work with the new browsers, their security assumptions, and lack of java or flash support.

I'm fully aware of technology deprecating, so I don't want pontification about support for Java or flash, that's not relevant.

How do you run both Firefox 52 and Firefox 60, concurrently, using different profiles, installed to different folders, on the same Windows system?

Currently, Firefox will only run one instance, which is worrying, because that indicates that there are active dependencies which may indicate a lack proper process separation.

I want two separate icons, one for each profile I run.

I am running Firefox Quantum version 62 on a Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS.

One copy of Firefox is barebones and the other runs all kinds of add-ons, extensions and preference settings etc.

At the moment when I execute Firefox, the Profile Manager opens, I need to select which profile I want to use.

I want two separate icons, one ofr each profile, bypassing the Profile Manager.

What are the "Target" commands that will launch each?

Session lost after last upgrade, no backup files (FF 61.0.2 to 62.0)

Hi,

maybe some more precisions:

- win7 x64, with FF x64

- the "crashed" profile has only been opened, not yet closed (I use hibernate so it wont be closed till I have an answer)

- I use multiple profiles at once, and the update occured while opening a new profile AND running 2 other profiles

- in "sessionstore-backups", I only have 2 files, "recovery.baklz4" and "recovery.jsonlz4", all with a "Date modified" AFTER the date of the upgrade

- the settings of the "crashed" profile are as follow: "restore old session -> checked", BUT, "Clear history when Firefox closes has ALL checkboxes checked".


This is the first time i encounter this bug since Quantum got out. With previous FF, there has ALWAYS been backup files. I tried an undelete software, but it found NO deleted files in this folder, so I guess the files have been overwritten ...


I had like 29 tabs opened, and before this update, the restore session thing was perfectly working. When the profile opened after the update, there was one page only, the one advertising about pocket (so ironic ^^).


What are my chances to recover my tabs ?


Bonus questions:

- gnnn, why the lz4 thing on session files ? What soft should i use to get a FULL text version ? 7zip wont take it as an archive.

- i'm on quantum right now but i'm fed up, it has been disappointments only. I'm using FF since v2 (15+ years), and it's like they killed my browser (apart from the perfs, i only LOST functionnalities). So, back to ESR very quickly, but is that a long-term solution (do not consider security, only websites compatibility) ?

- Can i install ESR and quantum in parallel ? Are the profiles retro-compatible/cross-compatible ? I have 29 profiles, but not all of them have seen Quantum yet, so maybe I'm lucky.


Thanks !
