Install then transfer profile

You definitely want to install a local copy of FF.

FFPE is not meant to be run off of a local hd. I am not sure of the issues you might run into, but I know that it is not supported here.

After that read:

Reverse the procedure for local to portable.

Tab Mix Plus

I think that is a Tab Mix Plus option.

It is a great extension and has a lot of cool features.

I am not sure if it is under the normal FF options. If it is it would be under Tools>Options>Tabs.

Instead of

...shift + click do : strg(or ctrl)+ click. It´s no portable issue but a Firefox FAQ, you´ll better find that on Mozilla pages..

Middle Click

Just middle click on links and they open in new tabs.

For further general Firefox questions, please read Firefox help. If you need to ask a question, do so in the mozillaZine.org forums. This forum is for portable-related questions.

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