firefox 3.6

Thin-client hardware is provided by ncomputing 
workstation is a Dell Optiplex 760 with windows XP professional
There is a command line parameter which allows running multiple sessions of Firefox:

firefox.exe -P -no-remote

-P will open the profile manager so you can create and select multiple profiles.  Each session of Firefox has to run with its own profile.

-no-remote allows using more than one instance of Firefox at once.

Please try this and let us know if it works.
