Extension Portability

Nearly all extensions work just fine portably, including the most popular ones like ForecastFox, AdBlock, NoScript, StumbleUpon, MouseGestures, Web Developer, Sage, etc.

Be sure you're starting Firefox Portable the correct way: using FirefoxPortable.exe and never launching firefox.exe directly. Also be sure you're shutting down Firefox and waiting for it to fully close and then safe ejecting. Pulling the drive can corrupt your profile and/or extensions... resulting in them being lost.

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

What extensions

Also, as John said, make sure you use FirefoxPortable.exe not firefox.exe
