The mozilla developers have no problem running as many firefoxes,
seamonkeys and thunderbirds at once as they want. Environment variables
like MOZ_NO_REMOTE and command line switches like -P someprofilename in
BAT or script files get the job done efficiently, without extensions or
add-ons. The howtos are in the mozilla developer doc web pages somewhere.

embrace her, and she will honor you."		Proverbs 4:7-8 NIV
