The readme.txt file in the

The readme.txt file in the App folder says...

The files in this directory are necessary for Firefox Portable to function. There is normally no need to directly access or alter any of the files within these directories.

Might want to change that to "Private Browsing" for the official release Smile

Beautiful

This works like a charm. I've become used to going in and manually changing each new release of firefox Portable to do these very things. Now I don't have to. Still testing at present, but so far, color me impressed. Now I can just update Firefox Portable and everything is exactly the way I want it. Very good work.

If at first you don't succeed, pass it on. That is what the chain of command is for.
