You are here Platform Menu, Backup and Platform/Suite installer. password reset not working.

Submitted by IEBAcom on February 8, 2022 - 1:27pm

I've tried both a manually typed password after a reset,
AND having Apple keychain remember what my changed password is
and in both cases, after a half-dozen tries,
when I log out, and then attempt to log back in
either manually typing my password
or letting Keychain re-enter what it captured when I reset the password
Portable Apps will not let me in.
Not on my Mac, not on a separate PC.

In checking Task Manager for running versions of PortableApps I find only the updater is running. This has occurred almost daily over the past two weeks. While not fatal it is frustrating that something that has happened flawlessly over the past years should now be problematic.

Can anyone give me some advice as to how to resolve this issue?

How to disable Portable Firefox password saving?

Submitted by muratkurt on January 15, 2022 - 3:00am

Hi all

We are using portable firefox to login a webapp. We have many users on same computer and they do not want to keep their login informations (username and password). But firefox is always asking to save it and user may select "Yes" accidentially.

How can we disable or enable Password Saving?

Kind regards;

[Added] Show release date in update dialog

It would be nice to see the release date of portable apps in the update dialog.

I prefer to wait a few weeks before an update, as considerated more stable. We know that rev2 rev3 can happen, thats not a problem as errors/missing are a natural thing. I wont comply about that, portable apps are free, based on volunteers and I am very happy about these ppl, they are doing an amazing job.

I just would like to see the date an update was released.
