[Fixed] readme.txt in PFF source

In the 'PORTABLEFIREFOX.INI CONFIGURATION' section, the example .ini reads:

[PortableFirefox]
FirefoxDirectory=App\firefox
ProfileDrectory=Data\profile
PluginsDirectory=Data\plugins
UserProfileDirectory=Data\userprofile
AdditionalParameters=
AllowMultipleInstances=false
SkipChromeFix=false
SkipCompregFix=false
WaitForFirefox=false
FirefoxExecutable=firefox.exe
DisableSplashScreen=false
LocalHomepage=

therefore anyone copy and pasting from the readme.txt to a PortableFirefox.ini file to change any of the settings, like disable the splash screen.. their settings wont work, as i discovered!
sorry if this has already been fixed/reported.

Yup

That'll be adjusted in the next release. So few people use the INI that it hadn't been caught in a while.

put .ini in PFF dir?

I think it would be better if u moved the ini (with default options) into the PFF dir; i had no idea it was there until i came searching here for a way to disable the splash screen. i had no interest in the source so never looked in that dir.. but if the ini was in the PFF dir then i would have opened it, and seen how to do it myself.. which would probably stop a few posts and 'RTFM' type replies too..

Nope

That would break the ability to place it in multiple directories, since that's part of the launcher's search order. The INI confused more people than it helped initially, which is why it was buried. It's really used more by people that download just the launcher and then use it with their own copy of FF (which is why it's in the launcher source dir). It will probably be added to the help file soon.

...

...and even less people look at readme.txt. Wink I copied the INIs from PortableXCode rather than using the readme samples.
