Google Chrome version 106 website problem

Submitted by Vagabond48 on October 4, 2022 - 8:19pm

One of my financial websites no longer accepted version 101+ and forced me to go to version 105 and up. I just installed the latest version 106+ and 3 websites so far are hanging including the financial website, and youtube. Adblock plus also is no longer blocking even after I re-installed it. I normally NEVER download the latest version but could not find an earlier portable version from 105+ on. I had to use microsoft edge to get on the financial website. Is there any recent older version I can access? No being to access youtube is a deal breaker.

Chrome not really portable?

Submitted by gendalf on July 20, 2022 - 2:12am

I've been installing extensions and noticed that the list isn't growing in the chrome portable\Data\profile\Default\Extensions folder. Instead there is a Local\Google as usual. It seems there's an issue that sometimes it launches itself as a nonportable? idk I've noticed that sometimes my profile is cleared or just the extensions are gone, maybe it's because of the default browser thing.. idk how to set it as default browser in windows 11, there is no button for chrome portable.

Chrome Portable Passwords feature no longer works

Submitted by myisjay on July 6, 2022 - 12:47am

I use these settings:

However, it never writes the password to the "Portable Passwords" file. It keeps using the regular profile db. If I use the same computer, the saved passwords are there. If I use a different computer, it does not know the passwords.

I wanted to download Google Chrome online without installing it, and finally, I was able to find the direct link and download it ( Here --> )

Now I had a question to make Google Chrome portable, I replaced this new installation folder (App\Chrome-bin\103.0.5060.53 ) with the old one( App\Chrome-bin\95.0 ) in its folder and it is working without any problems..

Pidgin - plugins support

Submitted by AbsolutelyRandom on June 19, 2022 - 2:20am

Are there any plans to introduce support for Pidgin plugins? Currently there are only three PortableApps-compatible plugins available. Manual placement of plugins in Pidgin App's folder is pointless as any further update will remove its content. How about a workaround like a "plugin" folder in the application's Data folder? The content of Data's plugin folder would be moved to App's plugin folder. On program closure it would be moved back.

Google Chrome Portable no longer can substitute Edge

Submitted by restitutororbis on June 13, 2022 - 3:35pm

Hello, been a long-time user of portable apps, kudos for the great website. I accidentally clicked on the Make default browser pop-up in Edge and that messed up the previously default Google Chrome portable. I went through two threads dealing with that but besides changing the Google Chrome to Google Chrome Portable entry in the Windows 10 settings, nothing else happened. Upon attempting to make Chrome the default browser in its settings, nothing happens. Upon trying the same in the Windows settings, also nothing happens. What is this new skulduggery and is there a way around it?
