Few bugs with new version FirefoxPortable.exe

Hello to all!
I used many years version 2.0.6.0 of executable file FirefoxPortable.exe and all was good, but i have a problem with extensions(plugins), every time when i prepared my build with all extensions and copying in another place i need again INSTALLING ALL EXTENSIONS.
This thing very boring for me and i need to be updated for the new build of the FirefoxPortable.exe 2.3.0.0 and problem with extensions solved.
I was been very Happy Smile
but after using i had found next problems which never have in previous version of Exe.

- problem with AllowMultipleInstances, when i click on the ALREADY running of SAME copy Firefox system will opening NEW WINDOW, i have many browsers and this problem can not help me found COPY OF THE FIREFOX which I "searching".
- i lost a chance sorting copy of the browsers in the background.
- all browsers in the background sorting randomly(or may be typed algorithm, i do not know HOW), but in previous FirefoxPortable.exe have a good sorting, all browser sorts when he started.
- when i downloaded update of the new version browser in browser and click on the button "restart browser" opening NEW WINDOW, but not updated browser, in OLD version of FirefoxPortable.exe browser restarting already updated.
- when i downloading new version in the ONE OF COPY Browser and want downloading new version of the copy browser in second copy i will get ERROR in downloading new version in the first copy of browser.

My Ini file next:
[FirefoxPortable]
FirefoxDirectory=App\firefox
ProfileDirectory=Data\profile
SettingsDirectory=Data\settings
PluginsDirectory=Data\plugins
FirefoxExecutable=firefox.exe
AdditionalParameters=
LocalHomepage=
DisableSplashScreen=true
AllowMultipleInstances=true
DisableIntelligentStart=false
SkipCompregFix=false
RunLocally=false

Can you help me in fixing this problems?

All New

You must use the newer launcher for all instances and you must only use modern versions of Firefox for this to work correctly now. Firefox entirely changed the way it handles multiple instances and the old launcher won't work with it. Please update all copies using either the platform or a manual process outlined here: https://portableapps.com/support/portable_app#upgrading

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

Can't

Sorry, but I can't assist with the old launcher. It's not made for modern Firefox and won't properly portablize it.
