Integrate KeePassXC portable with Firefox Portable via the addon

Submitted by getco on April 4, 2018 - 11:05am

Has anyone tried integrating KeePassXC portable with Firefox Portable via the KeePassXC-Browser addon (

I think there might be a problem with the fact that FF is portable and KeePassXC can't intercept it somehow?

Any ideas?

Why is VeraCrypt triggering UAC?

Submitted by PrincessColumbia on November 1, 2017 - 3:18pm

So my understanding of the whole philosophy of PortableApps was to have software that would normally require Admin rights to the computer installed in such a way as to not require that. "Set your PC free" and all that.

So why is it that attempting to run VeraCrypt is hitting me with a prompt to enter admin credentials? If I had admin credentials, I wouldn't need the portable version of the app.

Am I just doing something wrong?

Spybot - Search and Destroy V2.5 portable install fails

Submitted by lowell.dennis@g... on January 12, 2017 - 1:44am

When installing Spybot - Search and Destroy V2.5 Portable (which I downloaded from here) I get the following error:

Error opening file for writing:


Click abort to stop the installation,
Retry to try again, or
Ignore to skip the file

I have tried and gotten this error on two separate systems with two separate USB keys.

Has anyone else seen this? Is there a fix or workaround?



"Download Error: Redirection (302) on file..." during updates and/or download.

Submitted by GaijinPanda on November 16, 2016 - 9:31pm

This particular error happened while updating McAfee Stinger, which makes me particularly suspicious.

Can anyone tell me what this error means exactly. I know what the definition of redirection is but, is this just a badly named error for something else, or is it possible that someone is trying to inject a payload into the exe file during an update?

I've also seen this same error while trying to install a database viewer app a month ago.

[Fixed] Password Safe Portable last safe not saved

Submitted by Swwright on October 26, 2016 - 7:24pm

I upgraded to version 1.40 using the automatic update feature of PortableApps. I don't use it every day, so it was a couple of days before I discovered this trouble.

When I open Password Safe Portable, it used to show me the last safe it opened, and I just had to type in my key to unlock the safe.
