Source code for MultiFirefox

branch: master
README
Please read MITLicense.txt for license information.

This is the source code repository for MultiFirefox.  Please be careful
contributing patches!

Warning:
========

The source code for MultiFirefox, while functional, is old, and one of my first
attempts at Objective-C. I haven't had any real time to rewrite chunks of it,
so if you have difficulty following it, or find yourself laughing out loud at
the way things were done, just keep that in mind ;)

- Dave Martorana


How To Use:
============

Because of its elementary nature, MultiFirefox looks for any app in your /Applications directory that starts with "Firefox." Downloading and installing versions of Firefox by appending their version number makes the most sense. For instance:

/Applications/Firefox 5.01
/Applications/Firefox 3.6
/Applications/Firefox 3.3
/Applications/Firefox 2

When you launch MultiFirefox the first time, it will ask you to create a profile. At any time you can use MultiFirefox to launch Firefox's built-in Profile Manager.
Best practice is to create one profile per browser version, and it makes sense to name those profiles in conjunction with the browser version you will use them for.

NOTE: You can have as many profiles as you like, including several for the same version!

When MultiFirefox launches, simply select a browser version, and the profile you've created for it, and voila!
If you've followed the best practice above, the appropriate profile will be selected for you when you select a version.
