Updating firefox portable
You can install multiple copies for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc.
They're each self-contained and will automatically get the updated Firefox Portable launcher from your main Firefox Portable install, so you don't have to go updating them all individually.
I know portableapps includes a portable firefox beta already, but I want them all in same same folder lol so changing launcher a bit let me do this.
And I have to say I rather like this, even more than having a second profile.
With the addon the profile switching works well, been using it since I last posted and I havent had any bugs yet. At the bottom of the dialog box, check "Portable Mode".
The program will warn users that it slows down the process significantly, but probably if you've gone to the trouble to download this add-on to protect your privacy, its worth the extra time to you.
It seems to work but I'm not 100% sure if I didn't break anything in the process lol.
Additionally, some extensions and settings (local homepage, MRU, etc) will break as your drive letter changes.NOTE: getting multiple profiles in Portable Firefox (and Thunderbird) is discussed here. First, disabling the splash doesn't make it start quicker at all.The splash runs asynchronously (meaning that the launcher is still updating the Firefox internal files for path changes and then starting and it continues while the splash is displayed) and has the added effect of making the app feel like it is starting faster and preventing multiple launches (otherwise you can be looking at nothing for 30 seconds on an average flash drive).its still only installed inside sandbox and no harm ..its still only installed inside sandbox and no harm done.
