Is there a way to have a pre-defined user page in firefox which would be decided as to who signs in?

Example: I have a default home page & layout & my wife has a default home page & layout. If I sign in using my own Master password firefox will display the layout (theme) that I have chosen, and the extensions. And, if my wife signs in using her master password, firefox will display her own layout & extensions.

This isn't a security thing between my wife & I because we know each others passwords to various sites, it is just more of a comfort thing because I like to switch my browser theme, extensions periodically just to change things up from time to time & my wife likes to leave it the way it is.

I am aware that there probably isn't a way to separate the extensions, themes, add-ons that get down loaded/installed. Just more of a way to choose which ones get displayed between the browsers, or even logging each person into their own extensions.

We both use gmail, and if I install an extension for gmail and I sign in when she opens firefox after me she is logged inot my gmail account which requires her to sign out of mine & into her's. This is the opposite for me...

As it is now, we have a master password set up for firefox which unlocks the stored usernames & passwords for various websites, so I don't know if there is a way to tie that into personal firefox pages...

Any info on this? (I hope I explained it right...)

Separate Win7 logon user accounts or separate Firefox Profiles for each of you.
