I have two Gmail accounts.

I'd like to log in to both of them at the same time in a single Firefox window.

How would I go about it?

I know one suggestion is IETab, but that fix has too much of a duct tape feel to it.

There are some other questions covering this, but not necessarily within the same Firefox window:

Gmail now supports using multiple accounts simultaneously on the same browser.

Also, if you are just checking mail. You can use one gmail account to check the mail of another

Very good point! – David Caunt Oct 20 '09 at 23:18

Mashable has "5 Ways To Log Into Several Gmail Accounts At The Same Time":

  1. Multiple browsers
  2. Master account to which you forward all other accounts
  3. IE Tab (Windows only; basically an additional browser within one window)
  4. Gmail Manager
  5. Google Account Multi-Login (Greasemonkey script)

For Internet Explorer 8 users :

start Internet Explorer with -NOMERGE argument

iexplore.exe -nomerge

then each instance started will run in a isolated session environment so you can open another Gmail account or any other web service.

+1 for the Gmail Manager addon. – Decio Lira Oct 21 '09 at 2:12
+1 for #5. Also, perhaps you might add multiple user profiles to that list. – Adam Ryan Oct 21 '09 at 3:02
+1 for multiple profiles, however he just does not want it. whenever i have the same need, though, i run arora browser. any lightweight browser would do. thunderbird would do. – barraponto Dec 1 '09 at 1:38
+1 for the -nomerge tip. – Unsigned Sep 7 '11 at 14:31

To my knowledge, this can't be done well and only works in IETab because the IE engine is embedded into a firefox tab.

One option is to install Prism, an official firefox extension and run one or both instances of GMail as an 'application'. This doesn't work in a single window but is a nice solution, and gives you a faster (no addons) window for your GMail to run in.

As Revolter mentioned Google Account Multi-Login greasemonkey script can allow you to login into multiple accounts.

+1 for the link that was missing from Revolter's answer and even the article (s)he referred to. – Arjan Oct 21 '09 at 19:49
