RunLocally with CopyBack?

I'm voting for something that might allow changes to Fx while running locally to be copied back to the flash drive it was launched from. The main computer I use FxP on has USB1.1, so I run locally. However, when I find an extension I'd like to install or whatnot, I have to close it, run from the flash drive to install, then relaunch locally. Is it possible to have the profile and/or data folders copied back to the flash drive when a locally run Fx is terminated?

So?

I have 1.1 and it works fast enough for me.

Microsoft SyncToy

This isn't exactly what you asked for but it is a solution to the same problem. I have one copy of Firefox Portable installed on my local hard drive and an identical copy on my USB flash drive. I use Firefox Portable at home on the local hard drive and when I am away from home I run it off the USB drive. Whenever I get home or before I leave home I sync the directories with Microsoft SyncToy (free download.) This tool copies the most recently changed files to both directories. This way I can add extensions and bookmarks wherever I want and it will propagate correctly to my other device.

That looks like it may work

That looks like it may work nicely for my application since it's a pretty open-access work computer that has the slow USB port. It might not solve the issue for others with the same issue on a work machine though, as they would likely not be able to install that program.
