firefox.exe was not found

all of a sudden when i now try to use firefox portable i get an error message telling me it could not find the exe file, check your configuration. what is going on? i'd like to not have to reinstall the app cause i have my extensions, bookmarks, etc exactly how i like them....

any thoughts?

ps: i've checked the directory and firefoxportable.exe is there...

you can

install a fresh copy of Firefox Portable right over your existing one without deleting/damaging your settings.
Do you use the ini to change the name of firefox.exe?

Did you

rename firefox.exe to firefoxportable.exe? If you did, you need to change the INI.

I would install a fresh copy

over the existing one. If you use the menu for that, it will be installed in the right place and your settings wont be touched.
