account-switching plugin/script/whatever for firefox

Anyone have a tool/thingy for easily switching between two or more DW accounts? Ideally a Firefox plugin, but if you have other things then let me know. Ditto for AO3 accounts. (But not just "use a different browser" please.)

I use CookieSwap for FF right now, although it completely swaps cookies. Good if you have two coherent identities (eg, you want to swap over to a new DW, AO3 and Twitter all at the same time), maybe less ideal if you want to stay logged into all your sites except for one.

I've used LJLogin in the past. I think [personal profile] synecdochic knew of some problems with it, but it worked OK for me at the time.

I don't know if LJLogin's been sorted to be compatible with DW and/or the new versions of Firefox, but that's what I used back in the day.

LJLogin works again but as Denise says below it does occasionally lose the logged in cookie. This is rarely a serious problem, the system saves comments if you aren't logged in when the "post comment" button is clicked and so basically you just log out and log back in and reload.

LJ Login and LJ Juggler and the like have a tendency to make it completely impossible for you to stay logged in to your account. Like [personal profile] puzzlement says, I'm using CookieSwap, because it's the only one I know of that hasn't caused problems; I get away with it because FF isn't my primary browser and I pretty much only use it as an alternate browser for DW, but I imagine it wouldn't be much of a hassle if you log in to all your other sites once on each profile.
