Please understand, the problem is not, to run multiple Tor Browsers as  
the same user.
The problem is to run multiple Tor Browsers, each from a different  
user at the same time on the same machine.

After investigation I found, that this is because of a fixed SOCKSPORT  
and and fixed CONTROLPORT.
But each user needs his own SOCKSPORT and CONTROLPORT.

To fix this, the upstream script which is installed at  
has to be changed for each user. The patch is attached.

The patch first searches for free ports and then modifies the config  
files to use the free ports.

I have build a wrapper script for torbrowser-launcher to apply the  
patch, if it isn't already applied.
But I hope it will be fixed by upstream.
