Firefox can store multiple username for the given password and given domain.

Two solutions:
1. Enable "AuthUser", which allows different username to be set for each page.

2. Not a good solution, I would not recommend for a public setup.
 a. Edit Site.AuthForm
(:if enabled EnableAuthUser:)$[Name]: (:input text name=authid:)\\
(:if enabled EnableAuthUser:)$[Name]: (:input text name=authid:)\\
$[PageName]: (:input text name=pagename value={*$FullName} disabled:)\\
 Cons: would require to input password for each page, would not work as 
desired in multiple farm/field setup.
