2 Bugs in 2.0.0.2: PopUp Windows Size, Saved Passwords

Hi John or whoever,

I've been a hugely enthusiastic user of Portable Firefox for many years now - I thank you for making my life easier by creating Portable Firefox in the first place.

Yesterday I updated from v 2 to 2.0.0.2 and have noticed 2 small bugs that I thought I should bring to your attention.

1) Sometimes 2.0.0.2 opens popup windows in the wrong size. As an example, click on the link marked 'Angebot per Email' on this page in Firefox Portable 2.0.0.2 , then click on it in the non-Portable Firefox with the same version number:

Portable Firefox opens the PopUp in the wrong size, making the window unusable.

2) I use the feature in Portable Firefox to save my web logins and passwords. The first time I visit a site after having updated to 2.0.0.2, Portable Firefox doesn't automatically fill in my password like it should. Instead, I have to go to Options, click on 'Show Passwords' and then find the password in the 'Remember Passwords' popup list of passwords. Then I have to manually type this password into the login page of the website I'm visiting. The next time I visit this login page, Firefox automatically fills in the password as it's supposed to...but the first time I visit any page with a login (using my new version of FF 2.0.0.2, I have to enter my password manually. (Thank god the passwords are still there in the Options, otherwise I'd be lost.)

Thanks once again for making such a terrific app ! I hope these bug reports will be helpful.

- Tom

1. Sounds like a configuration issue, not a bug.
Go to Tools -> Options -> Content -> Advanced button (across from "Enable JavaScript") and choose what you don't want sites to be able to do with JS.
2. Is this the case in your regular Fx?

Vintage!

Passwords Bug is In Non-Portable FF

The bug posted about at the above link is the same bug I'm having with Portable Firefox and therefore is not Portable Fox-specific.
