Use Which Plugin Folder ?

Hi

When installing Plugins (Flash, Shockwave, etc.) I tried to follow the instructions at:

https://portableapps.com/support/firefox_portable#cd

Which says: ".. Copy the plugin .. to your FirefoxPortable\plugins directory"

However my Firefox Portable has 3 plugins directories:

..\FirefoxPortable\App\DefaultData\plugins
..\FirefoxPortable\App\firefox\plugins
..\FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins

Which plugin folder should I use or does it matter ?

Thanks in anticipation

Peter

I think

its the Data/plugins folder, correct if Im wrong.
Cause the data-folder is the one you back up so its logical to use this one.

Either

Either FirefoxPortable\App\firefox\plugins or FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins. I recommend the 2nd so you're backing it up, but either will do.

Thanks

Looks like its:

..\FirefoxPortable\Data\plugins

It wouldn't be a bad idea if the wording on the web page was clarified a bit Smile

If you use firefox's

If you use firefox's built-in plugin finder, it automatically installs to the firefoxportable/apps/firefox/plugins folder, at least it does if you're running the latest firefox portable install.
