How to put Firefox Portable strictly in one folder only?

I put firefox portable in D:\internet folder and put a FirefoxPortable.ini in the same folder as FirefoxPortable.exe:
[FirefoxPortable]
FirefoxDirectory=App\firefox
ProfileDirectory=Data\profile
SettingsDirectory=Data\settings
PluginsDirectory=Data\plugins
FirefoxExecutable=firefox.exe
AdditionalParameters=
LocalHomepage=
DisableSplashScreen=false
AllowMultipleInstances=false
DisableIntelligentStart=false
SkipCompregFix=false
RunLocally=false

But when i launch firefox it reads/writes to 5 folder at least on my hard drive.
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Temp\mozilla-temp-files
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\LocalLow\Mozilla
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Mozilla
C:\ProgramData\Mozilla
How to avoid all this and keep it in one folder only? (and also is it possible to keep cache inside that folder instead of C driver?)
Thanks

Temporary

Firefox temporarily uses all those folders. It is not possible to alter this behavior without modifying Firefox itself.

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