I've been using portable FF for quite a while now, and as of version 13, ran into a problem that prohibits me from upgrading. So I'm still stuck using version 12. Now some of the tools that I need to use at work don't work with versions that old.
I'm on Windows 7 x64, in a corporate environment, with an IT dept that doesn't really want to help me sort it out. Which is fair enough - they don't mind me running a portable version of the software, but don't support it - hence I'm here for some support.
I've done the fresh download of the latest version, run it, and I get the error message after the splash screen telling me that
"Your Firefox profile cannot be loaded. It may be missing or inaccessible."
I've tried copying a working profile folder structure from a local install at home that works, running firefox.exe with -P and -profilemanager switches, editing ini files, disabling addons in FF12 before running the latest version and am out of ideas. I've tried running upgraded installs of the working version of FF, and fresh downloads from PortableApps - neither works. I've tried it on fresh flash drives and temp folders on the physical hard drive. I've tried rebooting, logging on and off, and I'm out of ideas.
The other thing that is weird is that it works in other windows logins, on the same computer, and obviously it works with other logins on other computers.
Anyone got any ideas?
Thanks in advance.
