New In Firefox 3.6

Firefox 3.6 is built on Mozilla's Gecko 1.9.2 web rendering platform, which has been under development since early 2009 and contains many improvements for web developers, add-on developers, and users. This version is also faster and more responsive than previous versions.

  • Support for a new type of theme called Personas, which allow users to change Firefox's appearance with a single click.
  • Protection from out-of-date plugins to keep users safer as they browse.
  • Open, native video can now be displayed full screen and supports poster frames.
  • Improved JavaScript performance, overall browser responsiveness, and startup time.
  • The ability for web developers to indicate that scripts should run asynchronously to speed up page load times.
  • Continued support for downloadable web fonts using the new WOFF font format.
  • Support for new CSS attributes such as gradients, background sizing, and pointer events.
  • Support for new DOM and HTML5 specifications including the Drag & Drop API and the File API, which allow for more interactive web pages.
  • Changes to how third-party software can integrate with Firefox in order to prevent crashes.

Auto-Update Issue

If you allow Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition to auto-update, some non-personal files may remain on the local PC. This will be addressed in a later release.

PortableApps.com Installer / PortableApps.com Format

Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition is packaged in a PortableApps.com Installer so it will automatically detect an existing PortableApps.com installation when your drive is plugged in. And it's in PortableApps.com Format, so it automatically works with the PortableApps.com Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.

Flash does not work anymore with FirefoxPortable 3.6.4

And I could not install the new Flash version as requested by FF 3.6.4 and having followed the hints at http://portableapps.com/support/firefox_portable#plugins.

I had to uninstall previous Flash, REboot, allow Adobe DLM firew

Adobe DLM (called getPlus+) firewall access, DL new Flash version, close ALL programs, install new Flash, start your Firefox again. This sequence is what I remember. Also this was on my local C:\\ HDD installation, NOT Portable version, FWIW.

SEE http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html for details. Hope this helps.
