Beta is a an update channel. It will not install as a separate instance of Firefox.

You can: -Use Developer Edition instead, which will keep a separate program path and profile. -Install a portable version of one (or more) of the Firefoxen.

the deve is not stable

What do you think beta is?

and does send data to partners

It sends diagnostic data. Unless of course you turn it off in Preferences.

You can get and run as many portable versions of Firefox as you like, from PortableApps.com . If you install them standalone, you will need to update manually. If use use their platform, you get updates and a launcher. https://portableapps.com/apps/internet/firefox_portable https://portableapps.com/support/portable_app#upgrading
