Handle multiple gmail, yahoo, hotmail accounts using only firefox

We mentioned this in our podcast. You can handle multiple gmail accounts (and other types of account, yahoo, hotmail etc) by using firefox profiles. In windows the best way I found is to create a shortcut which uses a different profile. To do this in Windows 7:  

  • Right click on the desktop
  • New -> shortcut
  • Handle multiple gmail, yahoo, hotmail accounts using only firefox
  • Put this in the Location of Item
      • GPlus is the name of the profile you will create
  • Next screen put the name of the shortcut, maybe Gplus??
  • Handle multiple gmail, yahoo, hotmail accounts using only firefox
  • Double click the shortcut and firefox will show you the Profile selector screen
  • Create Profile
    • Give it the name of the profile you used above
  • Now it will work and you can move that shortcut anywhere youwont.

Thanks, Chris
