New in This Release

In this release, Firefox has been updated to 3.0.3 (release notes).

Reminder: Don't Auto-Update

We also wanted to remind everyone not to use the built in auto-updater with Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition due to an unfixed bug in the updater itself. As with all software in Format, you can do an in-place upgrade (install the new version right over the old one) and all your data will be preserved. More here: Upgrading Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition and Bug 406335. Installer / Format

Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition is packaged in a Installer so it will automatically detect an existing installation when your drive is plugged in. And it's in Format, so it automatically works with the Suite including the Menu and Backup Utility.


Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition is available for immediate download from the Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition homepage. You can get the German release from the German homepage and the French, Italian, Japanese and Simplified Chinese releases from the Localization page. Get it today!

1. I just checked it with AntiVir and it's clean
2. Please double-check virus findings before reporting. False positives are common.
3. Please keep support questions in the forums. It's easier for people to answer and find later than as comments on a news story.

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

It is great!
Is it possible to make it also in Greek Language??
Thank you.....
