ESR 115.3.1 prefs

Greetings,

I have an issue with FirefoxPortableESR 115.3.1: every time I change the "browser.privacySegmentation.createdShortcut" pref's value from TRUE to FALSE, it always returns back to TRUE after each restart. Is it a bug or a feature? The values of other prefs changed successfully and stayed like that after browser restart.

I tried changing the value of this pref on regular (non-portable) Firefox ESR 115.3.1, and everything worked fine.

Local Setting, Why Changing?

That setting is used to let Firefox know that it should create a local shortcut in the Windows start menu for "Private Browsing". As such, the Firefox Portable launcher is purposely setting it to true so that it thinks it is already done and doesn't try to create it. Why are you changing this setting?

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

Wrong pref

My mistake - I tried to change the value of the wrong pref with a slightly similar name (browser.privacySegmentation.createdShortcut) instead of the one I really needed (browser.privateWindowSeparation.enabled). The correct pref worked fine, thanks for reply.
