en_GB British English Firefox Portable?

Does anyone know where I might find an en_GB localization of Firefox Portable. I love PortableApps but I use the British English versions of Firefox, Thunderbird, & OpenOffice at home and would like to do likewise at college (where I use PortableApps). Failing that is there some way I can either convert the existing versions of these portables to the en_GB equivalents or make a portable version of the full-sized versions I already use at home?

Well,

Download a copy of the local versions and copy the C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox directory to [Path to FirefoxPortable folder]\App\firefox
Same for Thunderbird

.

no offence, chap, but what's the bloody difference? I dare say that those blokes wherever they are have done a smashing job with PortableApps as it is. Oh, excuse me a moment old boy, while I run and have a little something for elevenses...care for some tea?

Well old boy,

after going to play cricket, some of us do like their applications in the true form of English, before it was twisted by you lot over the pond. One must go for some afternoon tea now so tally ho and toodle pip, you can come for scones if you would like.

P.S. This gives me a great idea for a translation of Firefox, traditional English!

No offence taken Chris.

No offence taken Chris. There are a number of differences between English and American English.

Thanks for the advice Ryan, simply transferring over the en_GB version does work but it also adds a few extra, unwanted programme links to the PortableApps menu (Update, xpicleanup, & regxpcom for e.g.) and makes it less portable (nearly twice the size on disc). What fat can be safely trimmed from a full-sized Firefox or Thunderbird? Can it get by with the extra programmes deleted? How can I get it down to a similar size to Firefox portable?

Thank you for your responses.

Uh oh

Do not overwrite FirefoxPortable.exe or anything in that directory. If your drive is F: then you would replace the files in F:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\App\firefox not in F:\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable

Whoops, right you are.

Whoops, right you are. Thanks for the tip. Luckily I do back up everything before I fiddle with it so it wasn't too much trouble. I had installed all the en_GB Firefox gizzards directly into PortableApps(I):PortableApps\FirefoxPortable
instead of
PortableApps(I):PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\App
Fixed it now - running like a charm. Now I'll fix up Thunderbird & OpenOffice the same way and install IZArc2Go while I'm at it.

Cheers Ryan.
