“Firefox is already running” message

When attempting to run Firefox on more than one station, you get the following error or one similar to it. Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.

The solution is to have each station login using a unique login name to Windows in order for Firefox to launch on multiple stations.

Logging in each station as a user that is unique to that host circumvents this. An example would be to log the host in as admin, station #2 in as pc1, station #3 in as pc2 and so on. It’s not necessary that the usernames be unique on the network, just unique for each host.
