FF-P and FF

Hello my question is.. when I open the FirefoxPortable.exe it loads all my profile but when I open a link outside FFP it opens the Firefox.exe that is localized in App/firefox loading the folder with my profile in C:\Documents and settings\...... not Data\profile

I put in FF-P as default browser but it's not working well

HELP ME PLZ..

bye bye

Umm... you can't set FFP as the default browser through Firefox's options, or it will indeed use the firefox.exe in App\firefox instead of FirefoxPortable.exe. This has been covered before: you have to edit the registry manually so that the default browser setting points to FirefoxPortable.exe.

And before you ask: no, I do not know what the registry setting for this is.

*sigh*

Firefox Portable is not the default browser, despite what FF's Options dialog says; in truth, the copy of Firefox (firefox.exe) inside of FFP is set as the default. In order to make FFP the default browser, you have to edit the registry manually and set the default browser to FirefoxPortable.exe.

You have to realize that FFP is not actually a modified version of Firefox. It's an unmodified copy of FF with a custom launcher. Once it's started, Firefox has no knowledge of the FFP launcher, therefore trying to set FFP as the default browser through Options doesn't work correctly.

I have an idea!

*light bulb lights up*
Let's just make a program which does this for people.
BTW Bruce, it's HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\shell\open\command according to an MSDN page, but HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\ddeexec\Application according to other sources.
I'll check later.
Edit: Found mine under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command.
Maybe under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\shell\open\command as well, but mine still says Internet Explorer...
I'll re-run IE, set it as default, run RegMon then run Firefox. That should work.
Edit 2: Found this:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.shtml]
@="FirefoxHTML"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\.xht]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]
"Check_Associations"="No"
"IgnoreDefCheck"="Yes" 

That does it. I'll write the program now. It's called DefaultMyFFP (or DMFFP for friends ;))

It works then?

I'm assuming that this means it works?
Would this be added to the Firefox Portable page in that case? Seeing as SSSSOOOOO many people ask for this feature?

How about making one for the other apps too? Thunderbird etc..?

So,

it works Wink
I'll release a new version tomorrow with proper licensing, etc. I will also make it able to be dropped in to the FirefoxPortable directory.
It should be a bit easier to make DefaultMyTBP, if you guys want it.
John, should I open a new thread for DMTBP?
The registry keys I need is HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\mailto\shell\open\command and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\Mail. Does anyone know if there are any file types used by Thunderbird?

How to set the launcher as

How to set the launcher as default browser:
Set firefox (or even IE) as default.
Open an explorer window, Tools -> Folder Options -> File Types tab
Look for all file types associated with Fx (or IE) and change them to associate with the launcher.
It's easier than editing the registry manually. Blum

Yeah, but it's worth checking the file types to see that everything is asscoiated.
