I tried to install Firefox 52 ESR Portable in order to be able to use the video call feature on Google Hangouts (this feature is officially brokee in later versions and they haven't released a fix for it yet).

I've tried the following all together even:
The portable version of Mozilla Firefox do not work properly. some features not working, I tried with opera that works very well.
However, the non-portable version of Firefox works very well.
I'm using Firefox Portable on Windows 10 and also have one version installed.
When I make D:\files\PortableApps\PortableApps\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe the default program for http etc. I always get a message that already an instance is running if another window is already open.
(If I ignore the message and don't press enter and try to open the link again it is opening in the existing Firefox..)
