Firefox for two users.

by exiler / March 26, 2005 1:09 AM PST

I am using Firefox and would like my wife to use Firefox using her own bookmarks and options and not mine.
Do I have to download another copy of firefox and configure it for her, or is there a way to use my copy and configure it for me and for her? I looked for a profile manager in Firefox but none found. Although there is a profile manager for Thunderbird for different mail users.
Thanks for your help.

What OS?

This is fairly automatic in XP. You log in and you have your bookmarks, email and when the other user logs in, they have their space and marks.

Bob is correct but might I add

that Thunderbird allows a single user to have multiple e-mail accounts and manage them independently without changing his/her login on the PC itself.
