That is an interesting question. Personally, I would create separate
users on my Linux system and open browsers under those users to do
this. Here is the method I would use:
* Create a second, third, etcetera Linux user account(s).
* Login to my primary user account on the Linux system.
* Open Firefox and login to LedgerSMB as a user for a database I
designate(!) to be for my primary Linux user.
(! Mentally designate that is.)
* Open a terminal window such as xterm.
* Use "su - user2name" to login to my second user account. Where
