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
"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.
