Set Firefox profile directly within the application bundle
Authored by: phlops on Nov 19, '09 08:14:28AM

One huge reason for having multiple versions of Firefox that can be opened simultaneously *in one single account* is the simplicity it affords web developers who need to debug, verify, and debug in older versions of Firefox.

This is compounded by the fact that popular development extensions like Firebug don't support all versions of Firefox in the same version of the plugin. By being able to launch Firefox 2.0 with its own unique profile I can have it use the last version of Firebug that supports it and similarly so for 1.0, 1.5, 3.0, 3.5, etc.
