How to get Chrome to remember passwords

Submitted by nocternalvibe on July 30, 2020 - 7:06am

I have Chrome on a thumb-drive with multiple profiles and I would like to save the Usernames and Passwords within Chrome Portable. Any computer I put the thumb-drive into and launch Chrome always saves the Username and Password to the computer. I did follow the instructions on how to change the ini file to save passwords in Chrome but it does not work. Any ideas?

chrome not showing previous profiles, tabs and windows anymore after crash

Submitted by LidVan on July 27, 2020 - 11:49am

I'm using 14 different profiles in Chrome Portable, each profile has a few windows and several tabs.
Setting "continu were you left off" is on .
I had to hard reset my pc and now when I start Chrome portable, only my main default profile starts without the tabs and windows that should be there. Worse when I try to open another profile from the "other people" list none are there anymore.

Until recently, there was always a portable version of waterfox on the waterfox download page. It was real paf, with portable apps logo etc.
Since certainly week or longer, this version seems not to exist any more, the download button gives 404.
Is there anything known about waterfox portable here?

I have Opera on my usb and on my desktop, and I was going to try a game called Pups and Prejudice, and the landing page for that website says it can't work in Chrome and to try other browsers, which it lists Opera and Firefox as alternatives.
Any idea is this is a Unity problem or if the P&P game coding is the problem?

The title says it all. I think it happens every time I run Chrome Portable.

Below is GoogleChromePortable.ini:

; This file contains the Google Chrome Portable default settings.
; You can copy this file to GoogleChromePortable\ and change settings in it.
; Any settings missing from that file will have their defaults (listed here)

sPortable download-bug ((

Hi everybody!

Its too pity to get this message after downloading sPortable:
" Installers that download files must end with "_online.paf.exe".
This is to ensure that users always know that an installer downloads files before it is run.
Please rename the file to end in _online.paf.exe before running."

What is the problem? Everything used to work fine before (previous versions)

K-Meleon Browser Forum Mentions

Submitted by PortableGood on May 17, 2020 - 7:36pm

I've recently been reading a learning a little about the K-Meleon web browser.

While educating myself about it, I came across some mentions of the version on the official K-Meleon forums:,148500,page=17

Regarding the version available on, one frequent poster (maybe a K-Meleon contributor, I don't know), wrote: "Nothing that isn't here [on] or in the roytam's site is the version it pretends."
