Exactly. Due to session/cookie handling, nearly all websites that
require a login do not support multiple logins.  The tip on this
thread to use different hostnames is a great idea for an admin to

In some browsers, opening a "new window" will create a separate
session.  Firefox only allows a single session for all windows, but
you can run multiple profiles which gives you multiple sessions.

To launch the profile manager, run:
  firefox -ProfileManager

Then create 2 or more profiles.  Then run each profile with the
-no-remote switch:
  firefox  -no-remote -P <profile>

Now you can login to roundcube, gmail, etc. with separate users at the
same time.
