Deleted ??

Deleted? Are you sure about this?

You can just quickly check if the addons are still there or not by going to the "extensions" folder in the \Data\profile\ directory of your Firefox Portable installation.

Probably Local Only

Since it's a non-standard extension, it may restart Firefox with specific settings, in which case it's probably restarting it in non-portable mode. That means it can't work with Firefox Portable. Due to the nature of the extension, it should probably only be used with a local copy anyway.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Local Firefox

I mean the extension, since it's a specialized one designed to launch Firefox in a full-screen mode you can't escape out of, can probably only work properly with a locally installed copy of Firefox. In other words, standard Firefox, not Firefox Portable.

Non-Standard

As it's non-standard and user-hostile (meaning it's preventing the user from using expected functionality), I doubt it. A user is supposed to be able to exit from full-screen, bring up the URL bar, etc. I don't know personally, though, as I have no experience with such extensions.

No trouble with Firefox Portable

Just to let you know, I've done a few tests of the addon in question on Firefox Portable, running from Removable Disk flash drive, also from local Hard Drive, on Win XP Home SP3 as admin, also from Win 8.1 as guest and administrator, and have not encountered any problems. The addon appears to work as described, however, this is the first time I have ever used it.
