Default 2 Firefoxes????

So, we are only using 1 computer now.
The wife fell in love with FF once I started using it, and she put it on this computer. Now, it is all set up her way.
I do not want to use IE, so can I have my own FF?
Can we have 2, or is there some kind of plug in that will allow us to switch between two??

That may work...

Or you could do this:

"C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager

Incorrect.

Close firefox completely and restart it using the command line I provided.

yeah it gives you something like user accounts but build in to firefox, if you change the short cut for firefox to point to "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -profilemanager youll be better off, that way it asks you to pick which firefox profile to use everytime
