Recently i updated echofon addon for firefox and it stopped working on my FF 3.6.8 showing an error message. I was unable to use echofon. So today i found a solution and it is working again. Actually it is not solution for recent updated version.
To solve this problem i installed the old version of echofon again and it is working fine now.
Most of we have more than one gmail account. Sometimes we want to open those at the same time. But after a logging into a gmail account, if we try to open another gmail account it opens the same account which has been running. Even an orkut account opens automatically by the same account which is active.
Here is how you can solve this problem by a trick and open different account at the same time.
Follow the simple steps given below :
1. Open Run dialog box. In Linux, press Alt+F2 kyes. In Windows, press Windows+R keys.
2. Once the box appears, type the following command : firefox -p -no-remote
This will open a new dialog box with Firefox User Profiles.
3. Click on “Create Profile…” button. Follow the wizard to create a new profile, give it a new name as you wish (say newgmail).
4. Close any open dialogs before returning to the desktop.
Now whenever you want to open more than one gmail you can create new profile using the above steps.
To open multiple profiles, give the following command : firefox -p -no-remote
Select another profile from the dialog box.
You can create multiple profiles and open different gmail account at the same time.
The ‘-no-remote’ option creates a solitary session. This session is not different then the current open Firefox session or profiles. When the ‘no-remote’ command is not selected, a new window will open using the default or current profile. This is how session sharing happens and is what we need to prevent.
Because session sharing has been disabled by the ‘-no-remote’ command, it is possible to have two gmail accounts open at the same time.
This has been tested by me in Ubuntu 8.04 Linux. It is working fine.
I have not tested it in Windows. Please use it and post a comment about it if it helps you.
