Is this possible?
Whenever I try to launch firefox-bin while FF64 is running it just starts another FF64 window instead of launching ff-bin.
I can get both running simultaneously if I run one as a different user, but that kinda defeats the purpose.

Any ideas how to get around this?

Thanks.

AFAIK it's not possible.

That's kinda the impression I got from playing around with it.
Oh well.

You can create another user account for the other version of firefox and then su over to that account and run it from there. (You may have to do some trickery with xwindows to give both users permission to connect to the same server. ssh -X into your own box is a good way to accomplish this if all else fails)
