Recompile

You'll need to recompile the PortableFirefox.exe launcher. The source is included in the Other\PortableFirefoxSource directory as an .nsi file. You'll need NSIS to compile it as well as the newadvsplash and FindProcDLL plugins.

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

Ok i got NSIS

Ok i am compiling the PortableFirefox.nsi script and i see many errors.

I already got the NSIS program and the plugins..not sure where to put the 2 plugins i downloaded.

I saw a sample script that came with the NSIS program:
-------------------------

Name "AdvSplash.dll test"

OutFile "AdvSplash Test.exe"

XPStyle on

Function .onInit
# the plugins dir is automatically deleted when the installer exits
InitPluginsDir
File /oname=$PLUGINSDIR\splash.bmp "${NSISDIR}\Contrib\Graphics\Header\firefox.bmp"
#optional
#File /oname=$PLUGINSDIR\splash.wav "C:\myprog\sound.wav"

advsplash::show 1000 600 400 -1 $PLUGINSDIR\splash

Pop $0 ; $0 has '1' if the user closed the splash screen early,
; '0' if everything closed normally, and '-1' if some error occurred.

Delete $PLUGINSDIR\splash.bmp
FunctionEnd

Section
SectionEnd

-------------------

this script shows my firefox splash picture. Biggrin

...but where do i put all of the firefox nsis code? help me please. I just want to be able and change my splash screen :'(.

The plugins go in C:\Program Files\NSIS\Plugins

then replace the jpg in PortableFirefoxCode with your splash and compile the .nsi

...

My copy of Firesomething doesn't have an option to add a splash screen, Ryan... only one to change the About dialog branding.

Hmm...

But then I'm stuck with the splash screen as the About picture, too. I like Firefox's built-in About picture better.

Same deal except on GTalk

I've done the same steps outlined here, but I get an error

Invalid command: registry::RestoreKey
Error in script "C:\PortableGoogleTalk\PortableGoogleTalkCode\PortableGoogleTalk.nsi" on line 168 -- aborting creation process

any idea on what to do?
