Disable SplashScreen for ThunderbirdPortable via the INI file

Is it safe to simply create an INI file named ThunderbirdPortable.ini, place it next to ThunderbirdPortable.exe and include just one line:
DisableSplashScreen=true
Or maybe it is required to copy the whole content of ThunderbirdPortable.ini from "Other\Source"? I would like to know what I'm doing so I don't ruin the app's portability.

Platform Best, Leave INI

It's best to disable splashes via the platform. If doing so individually via the INI for Thunderbird, don't change the other settings.

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

I mean, will it work properly

I mean, will it work properly with just that one line of code in the INI file? I don't want to change anything else, but the question is: is the rest of code necessary to be put in the INI file which is located next to the EXE file?

I think I should be more

I think I should be more precise with my question, as it's less of Thunderbird-related thing and much more of a way PortableApps work. Will the program be able to get the required data (the code) from the INI file located at "Other\Source" in case the INI file located next to the EXE doesn't have it?

Separate Launcher

Mozilla apps use a custom launcher that's different from the PA.c Launcher. Not including stuff with the PA.c Launcher is fine. With the Firefox launcher it should work as I coded it to a while back. But it hasn't been extensively tested as hardly anyone uses the INI configuration.

I set up an INI file with the content limited to:

[ThunderbirdPortable]
DisableSplashScreen=true

I haven't noticed any issues so far. I hope it won't ruin the portability of the app, and the user profile data will be kept intact.
