I’d like to run Beta, Developer Edition and Nightly all side by side one another. I’ve created three Firefox profiles called beta-default, dev-edition-default, and nightly-edition-default.
Beta and Dev Edition run perfect side by side right out of the box. When I set nightly to it’s profile and launch it from the profile manager I can have all three up at once if I already had Beta and Dev Edition open. If I close all three and try to reopen from my MacOS dock Beta and Dev will launch but Nightly will hangup saying a copy of Firefox is already running. I open the profile manager and sure enough for some reason it’s switched back to the ‘beta-default’ profile.
Can I not have nightly and beta running side by side automatically? Like I said, if I launch them with separate profiles from the profile manager I can get all 3 up at once.
I’m running these commands:
/Applications/FirefoxNightly.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox - -profilemanager
and setting each profile accordingly. If I launch from here then all is well. If I launch from my MacOS dock, Beta and Nightly like to switch profiles and run from the same one.
Side Question: Any possible way to also get Stable into the mix? By default Stable overrides Beta during installation because they’re both named Firefox. Just curious.
