Using Firefox on multiple workstations with the same user - " Firefox Already Running "

Product: ProfileUnity

Product Version: N/A

Expires on: 365 days from publish date

Updated: December 19, 2013

 

Problem:

Although it is often a desired behavior, in some environments administrators would like to ensure Firefox profile data directory does not roam. This allows Firefox to run on multiple stations with the same user.

 

Symptoms:

You can notice this warning while logging into multiple sessions.

 

Possible Solution(s):

Edit the profile.ini file located under

%userprofile%\Portability\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox

with the following

 

[General] 

StartWithLastProfile=0

[Profile0]

Name=default

IsRelative=0

Path=c:\temp\

 

The cache is then stored locally "c:\temp\" on the virtual desktop allowing multiple launches of Firefox.
