    Let's say I have 2 accounts on a site that will ban if they find multiple accounts.

    I can use a proxy to access these accounts, clearing cookies inbetween switching accounts.. simple enough. However, what if I want to access them at the same time? I can open 2 instances of firefox, but how can I use a different proxy for each open window?

    Also, how can I "isolate" cookies? Won't the cookies be shared, and the accounts linked?

    There has to be a way :)

    Open 2 different browsers: firefox and chome and load different proxies for each. That should work I guess.

    Thanks.

    Turns out that chrome/firefox don't share cookies or cache, but do share those LSO flash cookie things. Urgh.

    I'm going to look into firefox portable - perhaps running a couple of instances of that will do the trick.

    Edit: Seems firefox portable uses a the c:\ drive /appdata/ for flash cookies, so this option is no good either.

    I'm going to investigate a sndboxed browser option.

    I use
    "I right click the Google Chrome shortcut and add --proxy-server= to chrome.exe in order to forcibly disable Google Chrome proxy server settings"

    Except the same trick works for Iron portable (chrome w/ more privacy).
    Some of the scripts used in tor no-scripts? maybe also turn off flash, so you could have flash disabled in one of the browsers.

    I got it - just used SandBoxie and opened my second browser in there.

    Simples!

    No need for all that mess with sandboxie or vms... Run:

    to create a new identity to run in parallel with your own. Feel free to adjust the path to your firefox executable, of course. And you can create as many profiles as you like. Each one with its own specific settings, cookies and so forth. HTH.

    Oh, nice, I'll look into that. Thanks!

    One thing though.. I thought all flash cookies were stored in the same location no matter wht browser was used? It's %appdata%/macromedia/... or something like that. Would creating a new firefox profile have those cookies stores somewhere else?

    I suggest you may open and run one proxy at one time. Be clever while using it.
