How Does One Manage Multiple Google Accounts?

In a WebmasterWorld thread, a user who maintains multiple Google accounts is running into problems because when he is logged in to one user account, Google apparently randomly switches to another account.

A number of users report that this is an issue related to Firefox's Password Manager. If you store multiple passwords for Google accounts in your Firefox Password Manager, it seems that Firefox switches accounts without user input.

One user has worked around this problem with a Firefox addon called CookieSwap. However, that is a less than ideal solution.

You can also ask for a My Client Center account to manage different Google Adwords accounts.

Have a Master Account created - then you can have a dashboard view of all of your clients and switch to them at will through one login.

yes guys, but you are talking about Google AdWords, while they are having problems on entire Google (adwords, adsense, webmaster, igoogle, and so on...).
