Installed FFP 22.214.171.124 onto SanDisk flash drive with U3 directly onto the drive, not under the folder apps. Then copied the FF 126.96.36.199 profile from the computer's hard drive starting with xxxx.default and dropped it into "profile" on the flash drive.
Settings, bookmarks, etc., are not seen -- just the basic program. Also could not shut down the thumb drive as the program was running, so deleted FF, and then it shut down.
Could this be due to:
1) The profile used is on D:\, not C:\docs&settings\etc\Mozilla where the registry.dat, pluginreg.dat, and profiles.ini are located.
2) The entire folder xxxxx.default was dropped into the profile folder, then the cache directory was deleted, then FF started & other instructions carried out as set forth on the website. Could it relate to the xxxx.default being there as opposed to simply the files and folders below it?
3) U3's website has FF 188.8.131.52 for U3 which is 6,630kb as opposed to the one on PortableApps site which is 4,980. And if U3's is installed it auto goes into apps and is assigned an app folder -- and then is listed on the icon launch pad. (Perhaps the same would occur had I dropped the portableapps file into the apps folder on the drive -- or is that the cause for the file to be so much larger?
4) Note that for Thunderbird the file discrepancy size is the same, 6,091kb vs 8,452kb, and the version is 1.5.042 as opposed to 184.108.40.206
