Integrate KeePassXC portable with Firefox Portable via the addon

Has anyone tried integrating KeePassXC portable with Firefox Portable via the KeePassXC-Browser addon (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/keepassxc-browser/)

I think there might be a problem with the fact that FF is portable and KeePassXC can't intercept it somehow?

Any ideas?

I have the same problem here

I have the same problem here with Chrome Portable:

KeePassXC portable with Chrome Portable via the KeePassXC-Browser addon

Any ideas how that could work?

I can see "KeePassXCPortable

I can see "KeePassXCPortable\App\KeePassXC\keepassxc-proxy.exe" running when I launch Firefox so I guess some integration did occur, they're just not able to communicate with each other. I'm getting this error: "Cannot encrypt message or public key not found. Is native messaging or support for your browser enabled in KeePassXC?"

An appeal to the more

An appeal to the more knowledgeable members of this forum - please, at least give us some directions what to look for. It's obviously not a user-specific issue, but something more global.

The problem is, if you use

The problem is, if you use both KeePassXC portable with chrome or firefox portable, you are not able to connect the datebase of keepass with the portable browser. You just get this error:

KeePassXC-Browser has encountered an error:
Timeout or not connected to KeePassXC

I already take a look in google to fix the issue, but nothing helps. Seems to be a problem when you use both programms as portable versions.
Hope it helps a little bit.

KeePassXC-Browser addon

Seems obvious to me. The 'problem' with the Add-On is probably the most obvious one, i.e.. It has been written specifically to detect the KeePass database only if it can first detect an installed version of the KeePass program via the Windows system. It has no way of detecting that a portable version of the KeePass software exists and so makes no attempt to locate its database.

The correct approach would be to ask the Add-on developer if it is possible to adapt the add-on to access a KeePass database created by a Portable version. This would probably involve a settings option with which a User could specify the location of the database to be accessed.
