Everything links to the main page for all apps. I'm working on a redirector based on default language settings that should be ready by the time appinfo is used.

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

Is there any notable difference for this update between using auto-update or getting the official PortableApps version?

Things have got to get better, they can't get worse, or can they?

If you like this one, dont upgrade to version 3 just yet, if you install version 3 and it doesnt work, its a huge pain to downgrade it back to this one. Trust me, im still trying

nah, it is as simple as with every portable app.
you make a backup of your firefox-folder.
then upgrade and test if everything works fine. (as long as you like and with every setting you want to test/change)
if it is not working, just delete the upgraded folder and copy your backup over it again.
simple as breathing....

copy the data folder into a fresh install of the 2 branch?
