BUG in Firefox U3?

Hallo everybody!
My 1st post here...
I've tried to find something about what I'm looking for, but seem I found nothing...so, I'm opening a new post, trying to write more information as possible.

I'm using a U3 SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB, and I've seen that when Firefox is not running and I click on a link from another application (ex.: a link in a Thunderbird-U3 message), it lost anything of his settings (bookmarks and extension), that works perfectly again if I copy the adress from the adress-bar, close Firefox and restart it from the U3 launchpad.

I've installed in it three extensions: Sage, FireFTP and the SignupShield bar (this last one comes with another U3 application that make me easy the use of forms, login and the password management - for the ones that don't know it).

My OS is WinXP sp2
I don't have Firefox installed on my computers but I use just the U3 browser.
Firefox U3 is setted as the default browser.

---
I've experienced the same problem in Thunderbird: when i click on a "mailto:" link, in Firefox-U3 or in IE7, Thunderbirds-U3 open asking the account informations (as in the first run), but if i close it and restart from U3 launchpad, nothing seems happened. - same setting as Firefox: not installed on my computers but setted as default e-mail client. - Should I open a new thread in "Thunderbird" section?
---

These problems are fixable with some special setting I didn't know? Or caused by a setting I did? Or it's a bug?

Thanks for any useful information and for any help... and sorry for my bad English and my grammar mistakes (I'm italian!)

I think that you aren't

I think that you aren't officially meant to set Portable Firefox as your default browser - I don't think that the different programs communicate that well to each other if you do it like this.

You should

never set Portable (or U3-)Apps as default.
Default means the PC will only open a filetype with the programm you set as default.
But if the USBstick isnt plugged in, the program isnt there...
And then things get bad.
The best way (and I think the ONLY way) is to open the programs and copy&paste things manually.

I DO...

not start my PC or any application without my U3 drive plugged in...

And, actually, copy/paste is what I do every time I see the problem...

Appsnapper

This could be what you are looking for to "link" your applications on the usb U3 drive.

It should also be found on the U3 "Add Programs" menu.

I used Appsnapper when I had

I used Appsnapper when I had U3 installed, and it worked well (occasionally had some issues).It is not free however.

I think Mr. Haller is working behind the scenes to try to implement some better handling of links/file associations in portable apps.
