I already use Firefox 3.0.3 but I have been asked by a couple of extension and one theme developer to test their software on a Mac, as they do not own one, using a nightly build of Minefield FF3.1.

What is the best way to install Firefox 3.1 so it will not conflict with firefox 3.0.3?

Cheers

Any ideas anyone. I would still like to run the stable FF3.0.3 and just FF3.1 for testing.

Two Macs. :(

I think they will conflict if you use them on the same machine. Even on different accounts. I'm not 100% on the two different accounts but I would imagine they would be.

Give it a shot anyway.

Two user accounts! Run FF3.1 using the second account. Then it wont mess up your 3.0 settings.
