2 E-Mails with different passwords. Firefox will only remember 1 password at a time - when I log into "A", it will kick out "B's" password, and visa versa ....

I have 2 different e-mail addresses with 2 different passwords. Firefox will only remember ONE password at a time. If I log into "A", I will have to re-enter password "B", when I go there. If I log off of "A" and then re-enter "A" (without first going into "B"), Firefox remembers the password, as it should ....

Two email addresses at the same domain?
Firefox allows only one logon to the same server, not simultaneous logons.

Try using this extension.

There are other things that need your attention.

Please Update to the latest Firefox 16.0.x version.

The Firefox Firefox/11.0 version that you currently run is no longer supported with security updates.
It is important to update Firefox and add-ons to the latest versions to get the latest bug fixes and security updates.

Getting Started

Multifox creates commands in context menus of links and bookmarks (Open in a New Identity Profile) and in File menu (New Identity Profile).

Select the command. A new window will open. Your logins in this window are independent of other Firefox windows.

If there are problems with updating then best is to download the full version of the Firefox installer.

Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.

Firefox 16.0.2 installed OK - thank you! I don't mean to come across like a box of rocks, but I just don't understand "Getting Started Multifox creates commands in context menus of links and bookmarks (Open in a New Identity Profile) and in File menu (New Identity Profile).

I've installed the extension and see a "New Identity Profile" (Ctrl+Alt+M) in the Firefox > New Tab menu and in the File menu (press F 10 if the menu bar is hidden).
Choosing that menu entry will open a new window with a new set of cookies marked multifox-profile-2 in the cookie manager.

OK, what am I missing here? I understand the basic concept of 2 different identity profiles, each holding a different password, right? How do I get the proper password in it's corresponding profile? I click on the e-mail link from my ISP to log in for checking suspesios e-mails. The link takes me to a web site via Firefox. If I go to Firefox's File/New Identity Profile, it opens a new web page. What am I doing wrong ???? Thanks in advance.

You need to login to the other account in the new window that opens if you click the "New Identity Profile" menu item.
