Run locally

I just learned about the RunLocally entry in FirefoxPortable.ini, and I gotta say, I love it for using on my work computer, as it only has USB1.1 and running an app off that is miserably slow. However, I'd like an option on the Suite's launcher to run locally or run from USB. I don't want to have to modify that ini file everytime I go anywhere else (running from USB is preferred under other environments both for security and because I play with installing and removing extensions quite often). Other than that, I must say I've converted from a pretty hardcore U3 fan to using your launcher almost exclusively. I only keep U3 on my drive for the few U3 specific programs I have (QuickPhrase, Winamp, and Foxit Reader).

Thanks John!

Found my own solution, but

Found my own solution, but need one adjustment I can't figure out. I copied FirefoxPortable.exe into another folder with it's own ini file as follows:

[FirefoxPortable]
FirefoxDirectory=..\FirefoxPortable\App\firefox
ProfileDirectory=..\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile
SettingsDirectory=..\FirefoxPortable\Data\settings
PluginsDirectory=..\FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins
...etc

This allows the alternate launcher to use alternate settings but work off the same installation. The only issue I have is that both show up in the launcher as "Firefox Portable", even if I change the name of the other launcher. Anything I can do about that?
