Is there a way to configure 2 Firefox browsers, each with it's own independent and seperate privacy settings, add-ons, cookies, bookmarks, toolbars, etc.?

I love Firefox, but I have 2 distinctly different needs. I need 2 separate Firefox browsers with very different settings, consistent with very different uses:

1. This use of Firefox will be for visiting many different websites, a wide variety of interests.

2. I need this use of Firefox to be very limited and restricted, consistent with handling personal investments, banking, financial transactions. There will be very few websites, but with extremely secure, private, connections.

You used to be able to go into the omni.ja file and change lines in the nsLoginManagerPrompter.js to make it so FF saved passwords automatically without stupid popups. I tried this in FF17 and replaced the omni.ja with the edited version. As soon as I open FF Crashes.. Does anyone have a work around?

. I cant get Yahoo mail to appear as a default mail option for firefox:

because I cant proceed past the "scroll down to 'mailto' in the 'apps' step of the instructions provided by Support.   I'm stuck there because 'mailto' isn't on the list. 

Right clicking on Outlook(the current email default I cant get rid of)does nothing.

Ive since modified Micro Office and deleted Outlook entirely, but that didn't make Yahoo Mail magically appear as an option anywhere.

I cant get Yahoo mail to appear as an option for default email for Windows 7 either. I can get to the page where you may choose how Windows uses various defaults, but Yahoo isn't there.

I downloaded the latest Yahoo toolbar as I had in the past for IE and nothing changed (what I DID get stuck with is an irritating as hell, loud alert tone that sounds with every email I get--even when there's music playing or a movie on--and flashes me a constant reminder on lower left of screen that I have 785 unread messages)

After installing latest ff (17.0) session manager was no longer installed. re-installed, but all previous sessions (as I stated dozens, with placemarks where I left off with online courses, pages with possible Christmas shopping items, etc etc) are ALL GONE. Been using FF for at least 10 years and this never happened before. Not a happy open source camper :(

I had my previous version of Firefox setup to ask me if I wanted to allow cookies. Although my exception list is still in tact, Firefox continues to ask me about cookies that are already on my exception list. And not only that, it continues to ask me about the same cookies every time I restart Firefox and go back to those sites. Is this a version bug or what? Never had this happen before on an update. It is incredibly annoying and time consuming.

I recently moved from London to Kampala. I used to use Property-Bee to help me to buy a flat. Found it quite useful. There is a property listing website www.homehippo.ug in Kampala that I used to find a house to rent. It's a new website and apparently they are going to have sales section soon. Was wondering how to make Property-Bee work with this homehippo.ug site as we plan to purchase a house here next year.
