Don't know about "a script."  Normally, if you want to run more than one 
version of Firefox (or maybe Aurora), you add the "- no-remote" command 
after the Target box string (command path), that is found by R clicking 
the start icon > Properties.  As an example, for Firefox icon, you'd see 
something like:

"D:\ProgramFiles (x86)\Mozilla\Firefox 9\firefox.exe"

This is the path where the executable file is installed (or in Aurora's 
case, extracted [not installed] ).  NOTE:  the quote marks are necessary.

So adding the -no-remote command would result in something like:  
"D:\ProgramFiles (x86)\Mozilla\Firefox 9\firefox.exe" -no-remote
note:  in the example above, there is a space after ...firefox.exe" and 
the -no-remote command.  Type it just as shown (substituting the path 
where the 2nd instance (version) of AURORA you want to run is located).  
IOW, put a space between the quote mark after firefox (aurora) and the 
1st hyphen, in front of -no-remote

If you were using this in a script, I suppose the use of -no-remote 
would be the same as described.
