Copy it

Just copy it from the portable locations (PortableFirefox\Data\
profile) to the standard local location (C:\Documents and Settings\[login]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\profiles\profile.???) and then delete the file compreg.dat. That should work with the exception of extensions that hardcode paths (which aren't portable and you wouldn't be using anyway)

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