1) I doubt you'll be able to run > 1 instance of TBB - at once - if
that's part of what you want.
Others can correct me, if wrong.
This is possible. Simpler since TBB 3.x. Although undocumented. Bits can
be found here:
The "-no-remote" command can also be used from Run (Windows) or command
line / prompt.
This article explains different scenarios pretty well.
NOTE: under all scenarios, a different profile must be used for the
2nd, 3rd Firefox instance. Or, you'll get a "Profile is already in use"
In this case, the warning is valid - as the same profile is trying to be
used by 2 instances. That wouldn't work, as possible changes from each
instance might try to make conflicting changes for the same prefs in
same profile. Thus, the warning. That same error message in stand
alone Profile Mgr (*when the selected profile is NOT already in use*) is
a bug. But if a selected profile WAS already in use, you wouldn't want
to use it in another Fx instance.
