http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile_in_use The problem is that you can't share a profile between 2 different instances of Firefox. Either you need to use 2 different users, or each user needs to use it's own profile. You can start firefox for instance like this : ./firefox -P first & ./firefox -P second You can create additional profiles like this : ./firefox -profilemanager
Severity: critical → normal
Summary: Not abler to start firfox multiple instance → Not able to start Firefox with multiple (system) users

Try using the "-no-remote" command line option, or setting an environment variable "MOZ_NO_REMOTE" to "1". If that helps, please close this bug as INVALID. Thanks.
Or maybe not invalid. Not sure what is meant, sorry.
