Post by oldmoz » Sat Nov 25, 2017 7:11 am

There is a a good detailed guide in the mozillazine forums
for setting up more than one version of Fx on the same system.

EDIT Remove redundant stuff.

Nice, been doing this for a long time already as I use 56 as my daily driver and even then I simultaneously need to run two different profiles at times.

On top of that I have ESR and Quantum on the system for Java and testing respectively and I keep them out of each other's hair and without crossover. It takes a bit of diligence as Firefox is very promiscuous in its harvesting of profiles but it can be done.

There has long been a sticky at mozillazine, Using Release, ESR, Beta, Aurora, and/or Nightly together.
