I'm having a few problems with my U3 GeekSquad 1GB thumb drive:
1) I cannot get the Launcher to run on any public lab computers at my school (although it does show up in the task manager's process list). This is not a crisis, since I can still access everything through explorer, but it is an inconvenience.
2) Firefox seems to be writing its application data onto the C drive of the lab computers I'm working on. Any extensions I install or custom settings I make are written to that application data folder on the hard disk, not the USB drive. Thus, if I come back after the system's been restarted (or to a completely different computer), that data folder is gone and Firefox creates a fresh one all over again--losing my settings/extensions. How do I get U3 Firefox to write its app data to the USB drive?
