And yes, I *am* talking about Firefox. Wink

Didn't see this discussed anywhere here, if so, please point me there....

I'm trying to fit Portable Firefox onto a 16MB SD card. Formated this is about 14MB. I've tried formatting it as a compressed NTFS and of course FAT and I can't get it to fit. I think it is close, but this ain't horseshoes.

Question: Is there anything I can take out of the directory structure that will squeek it into 14MB? Of course it is going to grow a little bit with cookies and history and other stuff, but I'm hoping if I can nuke enough extra stuff I can fit the important stuff on here and have it work.

UPX Compression

You can compress the DLLs and EXEs with UPX as I used to do with Portable Firefox. We don't do that anymore due to the fact that (1) it breaks partial auto-update and (2) distributing it is a violation of the Mozilla Distribution Trademark Policy.

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

That did it! The problems you noted not withstanding, it works fine for what I needed.
