Protocol (or file) Association

Lets say I have Thunderbird Portable and Firefox Portable. Both works fine. At least when both apps are running. When I click links (www.justexample.com) in Thunderbird it calls another FFoxPortable window. Great. When I click a file test.html on my desktop - it works the same way.
Now, I shut down FireFoxPortable. Click again test.html on my desktop or www.justexample.com in external application. Firefox opens, but bypassing "portable" loader and I got wrong profile.
It is unconvinient a little bit. So - I found some solution - Portable File Associator. I set htm|html|shtml|shtm|xhtm|xtml association to firefoxportable.exe %1 and now I can click *.html file on my desktop and it works OK. Even if FFPortable is closed.
But still - trying to Open FF Portable when it is closed from link in Thunderbird (or miranda, skype etc) doesn't work. I mean works but without FFPortable loader.
Is it just my lack of knowledge? Or I should live with it.
Any suggestions will be apreciated. TIA
