Changing the Name of the Executabe for Portable Firefox

OK, so with my drive, I go on many computers, and many of those are already running programs, Firefox is the main one. My Mom gets doesn't like it whenever I go on her computer and mess with her Firefox, and since I carry my drive around everywhere so that I can change the keyboard layouts with little effort (I use dvorak), I figured I could just run my own version of Firefox whenever I go on her computer, the problem is, that since the executables are named the same on my flash drive, and my moms HD, firefox won't launch, how would I go about modifying the launcher to do this?

Do you try to open your Fx

Do you try to open your Fx while hers is running?

yes, that is what I would rather do, then have to close hers to run mine with all of my bookmarks and such.

You shouldn't. It would

You shouldn't. It would confuse the hell out of hers and you'd probably end up doing some damage. John has more information on this.

Wouldn't it, that if I were

Wouldn't it, that if I were just to have the portable launcher launch the file F:/Apps/Portable Firefox/app/firefox2portable.exe, since the launcher calls its own settings file, wouldn't I have my own session, and my moms would stay intact?

I agree though that I would think it's not the best idea.
