Firefox Shortcuts and Tips
Multiple Firefox Instances
    This tip happens to be my favorite Firefox tip/tool.
    With it, you can run many instances of Firefox with different
    Profiles and different Firefox versions at the same time.
    The benefits:
    Run test and beta versions of Firefox without affecting your
    default Firefox configuration,
    Use different Profiles for different users without having to shut
    down Firefox,
    Test new extensions and themes in a new Profile before
    incorporating them into your default Firefox Profile,
    and other uses which you’ll discover as you use this tip.
Notepad
    First, open Notepad and paste in the following:
    @echo off
    set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=1
    start "" "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe" -p
    set MOZ_NO_REMOTE=0

Save the File
    Save the file with any name that you wish, and in any location,
    but you’ll be saving it as a .bat.
    If you don’t like the look of the icon, simply place the file in a
    folder, create a shortcut to it on your desktop, and then, change
    the icon as usual.
Run the File
    Now assuming that you have more than one Profile, when you
    double click on the .bat file,
    the Profile Manager should open up allowing you to choose a
    Profile to run in addition to your currently opened Firefox Profile.
    See The Profile Manager to learn how to create new Profiles.
Thanks goes to the edmeister for his original multiple simultaneous Profiles tip.
