Multiple Firefox Session

I found some posts about creating multiple firefox sessions. But they all require you to set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1 in your environment before starting a window. This forces each window to use a different profile. All I want is each window to use separate session cookies, or even allow this in separate tabs (could be very hard to get right).


  • Man I saw this posted over a year ago. I have been looking for the same thing does anyone have a solution?

  • No, not that I know of. I haven't even found a plugin for it.

  • I found this while looking to solve the exact problem you describe. Using Cookiepie, Firefox does not run in a separate process, but it allows you to have separate cookies (and therefore, separate sessions) for different tabs in a given website. This solves most peoples problems. I still have no idea how you can get different chromes to run in separate processes, however.

  • I just tried CookiePie, but I was disappointed to see that there is a bug which means that the session started in the parent window does not apply to popups.
    Unfortunately this makes the extension useless to me.

  • Try the CookieSwap add-on for Firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/3255

    I just installed it today and it has been working pretty good for my testing.

  • Very nice Jeff !

    Cookie swap is the solution for us.
    uncommentedbytes is the third result searching for "firefox session" in google search =D
    So here's the solutions for you that are looking:

    Yes. It works with firefox 3.5.
    See "'Simple' solution for ff 3.5" in the addon page
