missing firefox.exe key in registry (after FF portable installation)

Hi,

It seems the FF portable setup does not add "FIREFOX.EXE" key to win. registry? The key is expected to be here:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\App Paths\FIREFOX.EXE
with its "Default" string value pointing to FF path (including exe e.g. C:\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\firefox.exe) and "Path" string, pointing to FF app directory (e.g. C:\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox).

Some apps use this key for detection of FF installation. Thanks.

Yeah,

that's pretty much the whole point in using portable apps.

If you want persistent registry entries for Firefox, then you should install the regular desktop version (aka "local install").
