How do I start my copy of Firefox Portable in 32bit mode?

Hey, what's up. I've been using the 64bit portable build of Firefox obtained from this page for a while, and I can tell Mozilla has never addresses the problem with RAM on low RAM systems. 64bit copies of Firefox just increasingly consume RAM slowly over time and there's no way to deal with it other than to restart the full browser.

This is annoying, so I'd like to use the 32bit build which has worked for me well in the past. I can see its files are there in the App\Firefox folder, but how can I boot it up in Portable mode?

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

Thanks! That worked perfectly

Thanks! That worked perfectly!

I'll keep the options that are set in that .ini file by default commented out just to be on the safe side, since I only truly needed that AlwaysUse32Bit parameter.
