small question

what would it take to change the external (and possibly internal) names of Firefox Portable?

the reason i am asking is that as of today, when i try to load FfP at school, everything loads well, and just as it finishes loading my home page, FfP terminates, i am 99% positive that this is because of some new script that the school has added to the systems, most likely some sort of simple "target and terminate" app that only looks for firefox.exe and the like in the processes list and could be fooled by renaming it, how hard would it be to change it? thank you.

html.html

Check out the help.html file in the FirefoxPortable directory. There's a link to advanced options where you'll find instructions for using an INI file. That in combination with renaming firefox.exe will let you run it. But this is not recommended if it could get you into trouble/fired/etc.
