Firefox Profiles

I overlooked this for a while: In a comment to this lifehacker thread on sandboxing, somebody pointed out that since Firefox 2.0 you can run multiple fox profiles simultaneously with the no-remote option.
Since we are running all our web photo on picasaweb with a shared google account, this is sort of nice: Now we just have a shortcut to firefox -profile="%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Mozilla \Firefox\Profiles\Shared" -no-remote. Sweet
One thing to note: Make sure you start a Firefox instance with your default profile first: Otherwise all external launches will go to the shared profile fox.
Update: You probably shouldn’t put the shared profile in the shared profile directory… Better place would just be "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\My Documents\SharedFirefoxProfile"
