Oh, My ! Look What I Discovered in Firefox ...

Hopefully, this will be equivalent to the 'Multiple Chrome Users'' feature in Chromium.

I've been trying to love Fx again, but the lack of this feature makes it a deal-breaker for me.

Fingers crossed ...

For advanced users:
  •     Open a new window or tab in Firefox.
  •     Type about:config and press enter.
  •     You will get to a page that asks you to promise to be careful. Promise you will be.
  •     Search for privacy.userContext.enabled preference.
  •     Set to true.

This is an experimental feature.  Don't expect any support if it FUBARs your install, or your data disappears in the middle of the night ...   ;)

Maybe we should volunteer to be part of the Test Pilot Project, [nudge, nudge, wink, wink].   :)
