    why yes Mr. Egghead......


    Go to start/run
    type control in the box and press ok

    In control panel goto system/advanced
    Select "Environment Variables"
    in the System Variables area click "new"
    then type "MOZ_NO_REMOTE" as the Variable (without quotes)
    and enter "1" as the Value. (without quotes)

    close all browsers!

    Next, go to start menu
    select run and type

    firefox -profilemanager

    In the profile manager you must create some profiles.
    Now uncheck the box that says "don't ask at startup"

    Now you can choose a different profile when you run firefox.

    This allows you to use numerous profiles simultaniously!!!

    Perfect for logging into multiple accounts at a single website

    Tested with 3 accounts by me

    the point of this is for me is to be able to monitor many game windows using one browser where before i had to use 1 firefox and 1 internet explorer to view only 2 rooms

    now i can monitor 5 or more using firefox

    very handy for those that need this

    Good tip egghead. You could use it for multiple web-mail accounts too!

    bump

    i use this all the time after clean install

    so just to add

    you could create a new profile for stumble uopn

    so when you clear your cache using the other firefox profiles you can click on the stumbleupon icon for the firefox profile and continue browsing

    i have almose 10 profiles

    one is just for techzonez

    I don't understand

    Why can't you monitor 20 things at the same time, in 20 tabs ?

    COOKIES MY FRIEND

    THINK ABOUT IT

    TRY TO Log into a site twice with different user names

    you can't

    with profiles you can

    like supastar says you can monitor multiple email accounts
