Running from CD-ROM: annoying question for making a temp copy

I want to use PortableFirefox on a CD-ROM. I know, that it cannot really run from a non-writable media, an so it makes a temporary copy on the hard drive of the host computer. That is OK. But there is always a message window, in which this is explained and in which you are asked, if you want to make a copy. And of course you have to click on "yes", otherwise FirefoxPortable will not start.

The problem is, that the CD will be published, and will probably used by people, who are not very skilled in computers. And they should not be asked, it would make them insecure. Firefox Portable should just start, without any questions, PopUp-windows, messages...

Is it possible that FirefoxPortable just creates the temporary copy and starts - without asking for permission?

Thank you, and sorry for my englisch, i'm german Smile

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

Oh, sorry, it was my fault. I

Oh, sorry, it was my fault. I followed that instruction. But later i had to move the files, used another pc, had to start again etc. And i've thought, that i don't have to download that ini-File again. Because that ini-File is in the Source-Folder and i just had to move it to the Folder, where the exe-File is (and I've even looked in that ini-File and edit things like LocalHomepage or AllowMultipleInstances). I did not realize, that the linked ini-File in that "Running From a CD (Firefox Portable Live)"-Instruction is already configuered. Maybe you should mention there, that the deciding thing is to set "RunLocally" on true.

Thank you anyway.
