Windows 7: Is it possible to run independent extensions on different FF profiles?

Is it possible to run independent extensions on different FF profiles?

I have 6/7 and am trying Waterfox on seperate profiles with FF7/WF running on a seperate drive.

I can open all 3 browsers simultaneously with my profiles intact but I did notice when attempting to install extensions on 7, it messed up my exts for 6.

Is it possible to install extensions for each browser independently? Or do they automatically assume the c drive for installation?

For example have different site options in Tabfox, or cooliris on one and not the other...

I'd like to know if they can install onto my other drive's FF folder.
