Running Firefox 2 and 3 together on OSX

Create a new Firefox profile using the Profile Manager (i.e. ff2):

/Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -ProfileManager

Then launch Firefox 2 with the new profile:

/Applications/Firefox2.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -P ff2 -no-remote

Create an apple script using the Script Editor to have a launch icon:

do shell script “/Applications/Firefox2.app/Contents/MacOS/firefox -P ff2 -no-remote &> /dev/null &”

Save as “Application Bundle” and check “Run only”.
