Bug: Mixed up parameters for FirefoxPortable.ini

Hi

The two parameters AdditionalParameters and LocalHomepage are mixed up, for example with those settings:

AdditionalParameters = install-global-extension
LocalHomepage = hello.html

FirefoxPortable is trying to load the page http://www.install-global-extension.com

If you have any spaces, it's gonna mess up. Should be exactly:

AdditionalParameters=-install-global-extension
LocalHomepage=hello.html

And if that additional parameter isn't understood by Firefox, it'll try and treat it as a website. So make sure you're entering a real parameter exactly as it's expected.

Incidentlly, you shouldn't be using -install-global-extension with Firefox Portable anyway. It's meant for local installs.

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

It's not working even without

It's not working even without spaces
I have to make this
AdditionalParameters=welcome.html
to set my local home page. I'm using the 3.0.7 version.

For the other point, so plugins are installed globally with Firefox Portable and are shared between multiple profiles ?

Thanks in advance for your answers

Hang On

You don't need to do anything special at all to set a local homepage. Just set it in Firefox. The launcher handles changing the drive letter for you.

Firefox Portable only has a single profile. Extensions are installed to that.
