I am interested in learning the optimum procedure for upgrading a U3-based installation of Firefox 2, Portable Edition (v188.8.131.52). I want to begin using Firefox 3, Portable Edition (v3.0.1), but am concerned because I read on a Mozilla site somewhere that they recommend using a fresh, v3-only profile when switching to version 3 because of some issue that Firefox 3 tends to have with importing Firefox 2 profiles. Has anyone heard anything about this? And would simply deleting the FirefoxPortable folder from out of the PortableApps folder sufficiently “uninstall” Fx 2 or does some special procedure need to be performed to keep the PortableApps suite happy and in order?
Also, any pointers you might have regarding working with, backing up, and/or managing Firefox and Firefox Portable profiles would be eagerly received! (And from within Ubuntu, in particular--man, I am such a noob!)
Thanks a lot!,
P.S. Yes, I did read the section 'Upgrading Firefox Portable' on the F.P. web page, but I just can't get that darned Mozilla page out of my head... Also, the current installation has something wrong with it that is making installed extensions non-functional. So, the only part that I really want to transfer over are the bookmarks.
