I saw some posts asking about synchronizing their desktop/laptop Firefox with their USB flashdrive PortableApp Firefox, and how there's a utility out there called PUSS in development.
Couldn't you just use a file synchronization program (such as SyncBack, or rsync) to synchronize the Firefox profiles of both your desktop and your USB versions? But the question is: where are the exact files to sync, can you just sync the entire "profile" folder or does PortableFirefox make special changes outside of the "profile" folder?
Finally, is there any drawback to running PortableApps (including PortableFirefox) right on your desktop? For instance, I'm thinking of heck, just copy my USB flashdrive's entire PortableFirefox and PortableMiranda right to my hard drive! It should run fast because it's on a hard drive and not a USB drive. The side benefit it would be very easy to sync with SyncBack because your just syncing the ENTIRE PortableApp folder, rather than hunting for an elusive "profile" folder.
Do you think it's a good idea to just use the portable versions rather than regular versions on your own laptop? Thanks!
