How To Open 2 Gmail accounts with the same Firefox Version

Here’s the trick below to open multiple gmail accounts with the same version of firefox.

  1. Open the Run dialog. In linux, press Alt+F2. On Windows, press WinKey+R.
  2. In the dialog box, type “firefox -p -no-remote”. This will bring up firefox’s profiles dialog box.
  3. Click on “Create Profile” and follow the wizard. Lets assume you named the profile as “gmail2“.
  4. Now close the dialogs and return to desktop.

Now, open the Run dialog again. In the dialog box, type “firefox -p gmail2 -no-remote“.

“-no-remote” option is very important because it creates an isolated session that is different from the currently open firefox windows of other profiles. If -no-remote option is not given, then a new window of the currently running profile or the default profile is opened, where session sharing happens (which we don’t want).

Now, since sessions aren’t shared between different profiles, you can open two accounts and happily have them.
