Firefox Developer and Mozilla VPN
I've just installed Firefox Developer. I cannot get Mozilla VPN added to it. Can you help? Do I have to remove Mozilla VPN from the old Firefox installation before it will work?
Also, can I run both Firefox and Firefox Developer at the same time? I'm concerned that Profile entries an other variables might be corrupted.
Last, are there any articles or videos available to help users learn how to use FxDeveloper?

PS: Apologies, I forgot to state that I cannot find the Mozilla VPN add-on in Firefox Developer. When I enter it in the search box, Firefox themes pop up but nothing about the VPN. When I enter just "VPN" (without the Mozilla qualifier) I get a list of various add-ons but I'm subscribed to Mozilla VPN and want to use it.
Mozilla VPN runs on your device across all web browsers and apps you have installed. With Mozilla VPN installed, you just need to sign into it using your Firefox Account (that you have subscribed to Mozilla VPN with).
You can run both the Release version of Firefox and Firefox Developer Edition at the same time - they use different profiles.
I believe that these are the docs you are looking for:
Mozilla VPN is working now.
The other 2 questions in the OP are still open.
For a while after installing FxDeveloper the Mozilla VPN icon did not appear in the hidden icons area. As reported in the PS, FxDeveloper does not offer the Mozilla VPN in the list but offers themes instead. After coming back after making the post, I looked at both the add-ons list and the hidden icons to confirm by statements about them and lo and behold the VPN icon showed up. I was able to start the service from the icon and connect to the VPN.
Great support answers and very timely. Almost before I could get the questions right! :)
