Getting Existing Add-Ons etc. on-board: What Am I Missing Here ?
GDVX_111 - April 26, 2012 - 12:39am
I've done my best to follow the directions in Portable Support *to the letter*, over several versions of Portable FF. Nevertheless, I continue to lack the presence of around 16 Add-Ons (Extensions), long-installed to the Profile I have cloned for use by the portable version. These extensions are kind of "make it or break it" to my daily use of FireFox. (It would be so much easier if there was some way to just point to an established Profile -- like with a Config setting -- and have Portable FF obey that.)
My Bookmarks are equally essential. The ONLY reason I have access to them is that I explicitly added a bookmark to Portable FF's bookmarks that calls the previous Bookmarks file.
On the other hand, the Plugins from my older, installed FF 3.6x seem to be present . . . so I guess my efforts were not a complete failure.
I am very displeased with this "new FF version every 3 weeks" crap, and really dislike the UI changes ever since 3.6, so I think I will need to "retrofit" FF along the lines of some articles I've found online. But if I can't bring those extensions onboard, it won't be looking good for my use of Portable FF at all -- or maybe for *any* FireFox.
