Opening and Managing 2 Google Accounts in the Same Browser

If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

This is a follow-up to my post about why IE sucks so much.

I figured out how to not use IE, and still be able to open multiple google (or gmail) accounts in Firefox at the same time.

I had two different people tell me to use FF and Safari, which Apple just released for windows.

I figured out how to do it in Firefox using profiles, along with a short hack.

Normally, when you open up multiple Firefox windows, they share the same cookie data. If you’re logged in to one account on a website, and you open up another browser, you are automatically logged into that same account on that same website automatically. This is designed behavior in Firefox.

To set this up to work first you need to create 2 profiles.

  • Close all your firefox windows
  • do Start -> Run and then run this command: “c:\program files\mozilla firefox\firefox” -ProfileManager
  • Create another profile using the profile manager
  • Create a shortcut to user your second profile (you need to know what you named it, and it is case sensitive)
  • Right click on the firefox icon on your desktop and select “create shortcut”
  • Right click on the new icon and select properties
  • The target field in the new window is something like: “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe”. Change it to be: “C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe” -P “YourProfileName” (where YourProfileName is the name of the new profile you just created)

You’re now done creating the profiles.

Now, you need to do the small hack.

Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> System Variables -> New

In the 2 boxes, put MOZ_NO_REMOTE and 1 (so you are setting the environment variable MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1) and click ok, ok, ok.

That’s it. When you open firefox normally (with the normal icon) it will open your default profile.

When you click on the second shortcut (the one you just made), it will open your second profile.

The two magically don’t share cookies, and now you can login to 2 gmail accounts at the same time, without using IE.

This will also work with any other site (not just gmail and google accounts) that requires you to login.
