Use normal and private browsing at the same time in Firefox Web Browsers
I had always thought that Chrome's method of private browsing, which allows you to intermingle private and normal browsing in separate windows/tabs, was better than Safari or Firefox, which are an all-or-nothing proposition. Now Firefox, at least, can emulate Chrome's behavior.

With the Firefox add-on Private Browsing Window, the user can have private and normal browsing windows simultaneously. This can be used for things other than simply secure browsing, too. You could, for instance, log into two Gmail accounts simultaneously, or test a web app using two different accounts in one browser.

Use normal and private browsing at the same time in Firefox

A better tool for simultaneous accounts is Multifox

Not only does it let you have multiple accounts, but it makes it easy to track which window you are in (with a distinct number for each profile), multiple distinct profiles at once, and doesn't prevent cookies and history from working—they are just tracked separately.

I use it to check my Adwords accounts, which are separate from my normal Google accounts.
