Is there a non-portableapps version of Firefox ESR?

The reason I ask is that I tried to install this version from your website and got a failed warning. I guess apparently I need the portableapps platform to go with it, but I can't install it on an old encrypted IronKey USB stick.

Can somebody point me in the right direction for FF portable builds?

Thank you.

Works Everywhere

Firefox Portable ESR works with or without the PortableApps.com Platform. If you're getting an error on install, it would likely be due to either a drive issue (logical or physical error) or a permissions issue. What is the exact error you are receiving?

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

So downloading Firefox ESR

So downloading Firefox ESR from your website can install on a USB that doesn't have the portableapps platform on it?

Yes

You can download any PAF app and run it with or without the platform. Download, run the installer, and then run FirefoxPortable.exe and it just works. It's always worked that way. If it does not, please post the exact error message I requested above. Without that, I can't assist with figuring out whether it is a drive or permissions issue on your system.
