I have, or I've had a few suspects, but I need to investigate them more. What are you experiences through the history of PortableApps.com?

One. Mozilla Firefox: https:/

One. Mozilla Firefox: https://portableapps.com/node/57428

I suspect (and if my memory doesn't fool me) where there is one, there should be more.

Otto Sykora, here's your answer

I just didn't want to put the latest post which might be of interest not only to you in the middle of the conversation rather than putting it to the end, where everyone who is looking for the newest post is reasonably searching for it.

With regard to Firefox

PA.c just takes advantage of that which Mozilla built into Firefox. The program code is Mozilla's. If there were a bug, Mozilla put it there.

Firefox Portable for one is different.

It might be, but being it not advertised is also a feature, or advertising the difference is a room for improvement in Firefox Portable's case? ) https://portableapps.com/node/57428#comment-235766

So for one, I've found Firefox Portable to behave differently out of the box than Mozilla Firefox. Are there any other PortableApps.com software from which I should expect different behavior than stock, or Firefox Portable is the only one?
