List of not portable extensions

Hi everyboby, I open this topic with the intention of create a list of not portable extensions.

A "not portable extension" is usually one that uses absolute paths in his settings.

Some not portable extension are:

FoxyProxy (see here for more info)
ViewSourceWith: stores editor's full path in the "viewSource.xml" file (into FF profile folder)

Something else?

TMP's session manager works.

TMP's session manager works. It slows Fx, but it works.

Vintage!

A lot

It noticably slows down Firefox when running from a slow drive (like all flash ram devices). It also increases writes to the drive which will use up drive lifespan. Anything session or "crash recovery"-related is not recommended for flash-based devices.

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

So...

Split into two lists? Not Portable and Not Recomended? With reasons, to cut down on the questions? Just a thought. Biggrin

Hmm

Well, in theory, one could make the non-portable ones portable. All the code is just Javascript.
Just my $0.02. Gotta keep saving (I think I have about $40 dollars worth of $0.02)
