I activated parallel installs for Firefox but I cannot run two different instances at the same time, it always open the one already open. I can notice it by looking at the bookmarks created.
sudo snap set system experimental.parallel-instances=true
sudo snap install firefox_personal
sudo snap install firefox_work
And when I do
snap run firefox_personal
snap run firefox_work
It opens the firefox_personal instance
I can only use the firerox_work instance If I close firefox_personal
Where does the firefox snap save it’s profile data? If it stores it in $SNAP_USER_DATA or $SNAP_USER_COMMON, then this shouldn’t be happening for you AIUI, but if firefox saves it’s data inside $HOME directly, then I could see this happening
This are the variables for firefox_personal:
snap run --shell firefox_personal
env | grep SNAP_
And I can see that different profiles.ini are in
Thank you all, running Firefox with --no-remote does the trick!
So now I can have my personal stuff without worrying about them mixing!
ps. I even disconnected home and removable-media interfaces
