Firefox Update v1.5.0.1

Helloo and thanks for a great PA!
I'm wondering if i can update Portable Firefox v1.5 to v1.5.0.1 with the 'Check for updates' dialogue? Will it remain Portable Firefox and everything as such or become/convert to the normal Firefox?

Cheers

Yes

Just be sure there's at least 40MB free on your portable device or FF will corrupt itself (due to a bug in FF).

Update worked

John is definitely correct.
I just let it update...it failed on the first try and then said it was going to do the complete update, which worked.

May be taking up roughly another 1 MB of space with whatever was changed, but not positive.

file sizes after update

Does the v1.5.0.1 update replace any UPX-compressed files with newer yet uncompressed versions?

If so, what UPX command-line options would be neccessary to repack the updated files under the same configuration that the replaced files were compressed?

No longer UPXed

Portable FF is no longer UPXed to enable compatibility with FF auto-update's partial updates. Which, for some inexplicable reason, didn't work right with 1.5.0.0 to 1.5.0.1.

The partial update failed for me also, but after the full update came down it installed flawlessly. Thank you again John for making my life so much easier!

Stop updating to 1.5.0.1

Hi, How can I tell PFF to not upgrade to 1.5.0.1?
Don't get me wrong. I do want the upgade, but not now. I'm worry about extension compatibility.

I have severals versions of firefox in different plataforms, and I've learned that having the lastest always brings me broken firefoxes. I use pff as many of you for school, I need a stable firefox there. That means I have to hold updates of extensions until I have tested them and make sure they don't interferene with others in a regular firefox install. In other works, I have old extensions that probally aren't ready for 1.5.0.1 on my pff that I'm sure they work all together. I would hate to undust my old stable 1.0.7 pff.

I tried to start pff in safemode, but it still wants to upgrade. Thanks for your help

Process....

go to Tools-> Options -> advanced -> "update tab" and disable updates on firefox and extensions as needed. This is the place for configuration of the updates.

That was my idea when I went

That was my idea when I went into safemode, to turn off the updates. However, I think it's too late to do so. Even in safemode it wants to upgrade. I can't go to Tool->Opts... because the installer pop out before pff opens

Worked fine so far.

I'm running PFF off my MyDoc folder (easier for now) so I updated just fine. I was like "uh-oh" but it worked. Nice Planning.

Sometimes you need a little genius, and some duct tape.

Shutdown and restart

You'll need to kill Firefox as it's probably hung.

The 1.5.0.1 update fixed my Netcraft toolbar

I had not been able to install my netcraft anti-phishing toolbar, but after doing the 1.5.0.1 update, it was identified as not working with this version and now it works fine.
I guess sometimes we get lucky...
