Using 2 Firefox instances simultaneously!

The topic should be read as "How to Install and/or Run two Firefox browser instances simultaneously in Windows or, Linux". For a variety of reasons the people who browse world wide web for a bulk of their daily schedule regularly come up with the need of installing different browsers. Most common reason of that would be not to be able to use same browser that they like as a totally different instance. From the time I started to use it in 2006, Firefox was my favorite browser. Fortunate for me it had always the option to use different versions in different instances simultaneously. I would use the current release with Firefox version 3.x for a long time and then moved to current release with a closer release(or, beta release). One may use the following steps to use any Firefox latest version along with any other firefox version or, just a different instance of the same firefox installation of their latest firefox browser installation.

Beginner's guide to install "Windows 7"

This is the first ever guide to install any operating system(OS) in .NeXT blog. Well I myself promised that I would create something similar and so here it begins. Why Windows 7 and not any other version of Windows? Well that is because as a Windows user for my entire computing life I felt most of the users should know about this basic installation process of arguably the best Windows OS till date. So if you are planning to get a new Windows OS or, revamping a new machine and the computer doesn't have touch enabled screen, I would suggest to go for Windows 7 if the below mentioned minimum requirements are met. I would like to make similar posts regarding Linux distributions too in the future.

(Note: In the example below I have used Windows 7 Ultimate version. The other versions work in the same way)

The stage is set again to get the "Grown Ups" together again with "Grown Ups 2". The movie is expected to bring some charming fun and is scheduled to be released in theaters 12th July,2013 onwards.
