User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040910 Not possible to invoke more than one instance of firefox and log into different hotmail accounts in each instance. It appears to be possible and then when each instance is made the active window, the last-to-be-logged-in account appears in each instance. Multiple instances permit multi-account logins under IE6. This is the first non-microsoft browser that I have tried this with, but it may be true with opera, netscape, etc. I have reported this as a bug to Hotmail, but I expect that they will say that the problem lies with firefox. (Sorry I am not technically competent to unscramble the mozilla / firefox distinction, so I hope that this report is correctly directed and intelligible.) ATB, Wendy Petty Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.invoke firefox and go to www.hotmail.com 2.login into Hotmail Account1 and read mail (for example) 3.invoke second instance of firefox in new window 4. login to Hotmail Account2 5. dialogue box requests you to change user (from Account1) 6. click on change user and login to Account2 7. return to first window and select new functon (e.g. compose new mail) 8. window 1 now has Account 2 identity Actual Results: See above Expected Results: Each instance of firefox should act independently: window 1 showing Account 1 and window 2, account 2 and so on indefinitely. This problem occurs under Windows 98 as well as XP. (It seems that firefox does not 'remember' not to remember the login if the appropriate box on the Hotmail login page is checked but until the multiple account problem is fixed this is difficult to tell.)
