Default Getting two Paypal accounts linked because of cookies

I've always used an useful plugin that lets me switch between cookie profiles with a click through Firefox. Now I'm in need of using two Paypal accounts at the same time (of course each use with his unique IP) and I'm wondering if there are risks in just using a different profile for each account.

That's the Firefox's plugin I'm using: https://addons.mozilla.org/it/firefox/addon/cookieswap/

I hope to get an answer soon because I don't know where to start (besides finding another solution, which is something I'd rather avoid), thank you!

Never used such a plugin somebody else might but... safest way is to use different PC user Accounts or virtual machines.

Thanks for the reply. That's too time taking for me, I read about using one Firefox Portable instance for each account, do you think it would work?

"Time taking" switching user accounts? LOL

Firefox portable is possible, search the forum some guidelines on how do it the correct way.

Use VMWare if you want to use 2 Paypals at the same time.

VMware is fine if you know how to use it otherwise setting up the account under it's own profile on your computer is best.. it's what I do for my accounts.

*I should really get back into using VMware..

By the way.. get eBay Stealth if you haven't already, it will walk you step by step to create your account(s)

Good luck!

Thanks for the reply! I'm not sure if VMware would be worth it for two accounts only. What do you think about using Firefox portable?
