How to pin documents directly to the Windows 7 taskbar

You may have tried to pin a document or file you work on frequently to your Windows 7 taskbar, only to learn that it's too smart for that. Instead, you wind up with a pinned item for the program associated with the file's type, with your file pinned to the jump list. After reading a writeup at Lifehacker earlier today, I couldn't help thinking there was an easier solution than what they proposed ...

Google begins rolling out multiple account sign-in

For ages, Google power users have been lusting after a multiple account sign-in option. Many of us have at least two accounts with Big G, after all, and while it's easy enough to fudge your way through logging in to them all (say, via your browser's normal and private browsing mode side-by-side), it would be oh so nice if you didn't have to.

The PortableApps suite has always been one of the most popular (and useful) downloads around for your USB flash drive. Yesterday, project lead John T. Haller announced the addition of multiple profile support to the suite's trio of Mozilla apps -- Firefox, Thunderbird, and Sunbird. Adding multiple profile support is as simple as running an additional PortableApps .paf.exe for each app (here's ...

Run multiple Firefox versions or profiles at once

Out of the box, there's no way to make two different version of Firefox, or two copies running different user profiles, run at the same time. This can be a big pain when doing stuff like developing extensions or testing alpha builds, or maybe you just want to have both your and your roommate's profiles open at once. Of course, there's a workaround. It requires setting the MOZ_NO_REMOTE environment...
