Firefox Developer Edition

I use Firefox Developer Edition and the normal release in parallel on Mac and it works very well.

If you’re doing web development there’s a bunch of extensions/configs that you want on the development browser but not your main browser, and it’s nice to rapidly switch between them.

It would be great to have a separate snap to support this use case on Ubuntu. I know I can achieve the same thing with a snap for a different browser, but I’m attached to Firefox.

you can just install a second firefox (even from a different channel if you want a daily build or the esr version):

(i know a lot of people do this to run standard and esr versions alongside)

Thanks for the reply, I followed the instructions and this seems to be working for what I intended.

The first time I tried to install the second channel my original install stopped working with this error:

 XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /snap/firefox/2667/usr/lib/firefox/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
 Couldn't load XPCOM.

But after I removed the new one, refreshed the old one, and installed the new one again it works!
