    Hey members, I need programming help.

    For example, say I open up 5 tabs in firefox and want to sign up for 5 gmail accounts right. I fill in the form and everything.

    You guys know when you submit the form, it takes you to your account mailbox.

    How do i submit the form, let it take me to my account mailbox...but A different mailbox per tab. For example

    Tab 1 is to gmail account 1
    Tab 2 is to gmail account 2
    ...etc...

    I know I can use Different Browsers and it wont be affected, but that method takes a lot of browsers.

    Thanks for reading this. Let me know.

    I am not sure about the tab problem but this addon is great for switching between accounts https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1320

    don't think its possible as they use cookies to track a session. by logging into another account you overwrite the cookie so you're now logged in on the new one.

    hope this helps!

    That's pretty useful... very straight forward! Interesting how they make it very hidden to the average user. Had a bit of trouble on the command line, but it was due to one extra space in my input. Thanks apekillape!
