make your new splash screen,

make your new splash screen, put it in the same directory as the current splash screen (it's in the "Other" directory in the "FirefoxPortableSource" sub directory), rename the original to _backup, rename yours to the original name, then recompile the launcher using NSIS

The sourcecode

is the FirefoxPortable.nsi file in the FirefoxPortable/Other/FirefoxPortableSource folder.

error

ok, now when I try to recompile it, I get an error that there is something wrong with this line:

VIProductVersion "${VER}"

In makensiw I get a cannot execute FirefoxPortable.nsi error

oh yeah, and I cannot drag and drop the nsi into makensisw, I have to right click and use Open With>. I'm not sure if that makes a difference to my problem.

Download the plugins for

Download the plugins for NSIS from here:

http://www.portable.cubegames.net/plugins

run the self-extracting zip, then run the exe inside the folder, it will copy the necessary plugins to your NSIS directory (if you have it installed in C:\Program Files\NSIS)

Go to.

Sorry, don't have time to find it. Just go to the other apps forum, and look for the post called "Splash Screens", by me. And in it, I had the same errors, and Simeon and Ryan gave me links to all the plugins I needed, Hope that works.

Ohh I know this type of error

Had it myself couple of times...
NSIS expects VIProductVersion to be "X.X.X.X" (X= a number). So just make sure it is so and it should work.

thought I had it

changed VIProductVersion "${VER}" to VIProductVersion "2.0.0.3" and it still gave me the line error. I also still get a cannot execute error..this is turning into more of a quest for me than a boring-Saturday activity.

it is..

Caption "Mozilla Firefox for U3 | PortableApps.com"

(I'm using Firefox for U3; I moved a folder from the Portable Apps version to the U3 version so I could have FF 2 in the U3 menu)

Keep in Mind

That you can't repackage Mozilla Firefox without a license from Mozilla. PortableApps.com has a license for the packages we create but this license is not transferable to third parties.

So, if you're thinking about packaging Firefox 2.0 for U3, you'll need to obtain very specific permission and follow very specific guidelines first (some of which we're still working on together). Otherwise, it's illegal as it would be trademark infringement.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
