PortableApps

The optimal directory is something like C:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable. That way the installer will automatically detect it when you want to do an upgrade.

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

Sorry, I forgot to say that I don't use PA platform, I install Firefox Portable directly from "paf" exe to a folder. So, what is the optimal directory in this case?Thank you for your time.

The installers... as in the .paf.exe installers... will automatically find your PortableApps directory when you run them directly. It makes installing and upgrading apps easier even without the platform. And if you decide to use the platform later to get automatic installs, updates, backups, etc, it'll be easier to install at that point.
