Q1. What is the problem that you are trying to solve?
We use passbolt for a hobby project, where I work with a team of several technical people. The concept is so convincing, that passbolt now becomes very interesting for me also to be used in my professional background with other teams, which means, I would be using different instances of passbolt. But for now, as far as I understand, the browser extension can only be used with one instance of passbolt.

Q2 - Who is impacted?
People use passbolt in multiple orgs.

Q3 - Why is it important and/or urgent?
TBD.

Q4 - What is your proposed solution? (optional)
So it would be great, if the passbolt browser extension supported more than a single passbolt setup.

My workaround to separate hobby and professional stuff is to use different browser identities within chrome. For this usecase it is very reasonable, but I don’t want to create several professional browser identities just for different professional projects with different teams, because there are multiple passbolt instances involved.

Definitly +1 from me.
We have Passbolt setup at work and soon after using it I’ve setup a personal one at my NAS at home and also a shared one for my family & friends…
Right now I have different portable Firefox folders, depending on what I want to access, that I carry around from machine to machine.
