Firefox Portable for MAC OS X -

I am having tremendous success with Firefox Portable for Windows. However, I am new with Application Development on MAC OS, and I want to accomplish the same success using Firefox Portable for MAC OS X.

My questions are:

1.) How was built, compiled, and generated?
2.) Is there a FirefoxPortable.nsi version for Firefox Portable for MAC?
3.) If 2,) is yes, what editor and installer was used to accomplish this? Is it NSIS?
4.) I believe the NSIS Installer is for Windows only. Is there an installer like NSIS that can be used to build, compile, and generate a .app extension? If so what and where is it? If not, what can I use?

I sure hope Firefox Portable for MAC OS X will be as much fun and flexible to customize as its Windows counterpart. Thanks.

p.s. I do not want Cross-Platform_PortableFirefox_1.5_2. I want to use the DMG version.

Running Mozilla Firefox and Firefox Portable on MAC OS

It appears that my Firefox Portable and Firefox use the same profile on MAC. I want my Firefox Portable to run simultaneously using their own separate profiles.

I have done this successfully with the Windows versions, tweaking FirefoxPortable.nsi and FirefoxPortable.ini. Where are the equivalent of these files with the MAC versions, and how can I accomplish this? Is it one of the .sh or .app files? Which one(s) and how?

I'd apprecaiate some quick response on this. Thanks.

Don't know

The portable version of Firefox for Mac was not created here and isn't supported here.

Moved to Other Apps Forum.

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