I have installed Firefoxportable 52.9.0 on my computer hard disk on Windows 7. Besides running it portably via firefoxportable.exe, I sometimes start firefox.exe in FirefoxPortableLegacy52\App\Firefox and run it as if it were a local installation. FF created a profile folder in c:\users\[pc_names]\AppData\Roaming\.... I also set the Options, so FF is always run as default browser.
The recent Version of Firefox is 62.0.2. Why ist the portable Version only 61.0.2?
Will portableapps support firefox portable no longer?
I've got several Windows 10 (v1803) 64bit machines where I've tried to run jPortable in Firefox Portable without success.
We have multiple legacy systems that require Java7 and specific versions of it on browser plugin, so to be able to connect, we've used FirefoxPortable 48 and jPortable 7u51.
I also have native Java8u171 installed on the systems.
I've used this same setup in Windows 7 SP1 64bit machines for years without any problems but with Windows10 I cannot get this to work.
I have a Windows 10 laptop and an ultrawide (3440x1440) second monitor, and I scale both monitors to 125% for readability. I use PortableApps but don't "port" it - it's simply installed in a folder on my main drive. I have Firefox Quantum 62.0, Portable of course. I normally keep my Firefox window on the second monitor, and it used to happily open wherever it was when I closed it previously. One day that changed. Now, if it was closed while on that second monitor, it will reopen below and to the right of where it was when it closed (roughly 360 pixels down and 160 pixels to the right).
Hi all, hope you can help.
Firefox portable is not saving or caching my bookmarks and or browser history. Any ideas what could be causing this? Everytime I close and open it just opens a fresh Firefox.
Thanks for any help in advanced.
Hi everybody, I have a minor but very frustrating issue with my firefox. I have to use this portable USB stick in order to digitally sign documents, and it contains a preinstalled Firefox Portable which is the one I have to use because of certificates. Every time I put the stick in, I shut down the local Firefox installation, then I start the portable one, and here is the problem: EVERY time it crashes, sometimes just the tabs (The "gah - blablabla" error), often the whole application, and sometimes even the crash reporter.
For the last several weeks I am not able to create a valid bookmark in Firefox. Clicking the star icon does nothing. If I open the bookmarks manager and try to manually create a bookmark, it will only create a blank bookmark and will not retain what was entered. If have tried starting with no extensions (no effect), I have also tried renaming the xulstore.json file with no luck as well. Anyone have any information on how to correct this situation?
Thanks in advance
Mozilla added toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to Firefox 61.0.2, does it break the app portability (either standalone or platform) if we set toolkit.winRegisterApplicationRestart to true?
