Firefox Portable

Your own langauge pack

Submitted by FabianNL on December 9, 2005 - 2:25pm

In v1.0 you could change the language from US-en to your own language, is this still possible in this new version? Because when I replace the en-US.jar and the en-US.manifest (firefox\chrome) files I get a error. I first rename the files (nl.jar and nl.manifest) I got from FF to en-US.jar and en-US.manifest and then I overwrite the files from Portable FF, but then Portable FF wont launch anymore. This was what you have to do with v1.0, I thought, but that doesn’t work anymore.

(I hope everybody can understand it... My English isn't very good...)

Could we have form info, history etc stored on each machine's harddrive

I love portable firefox, but I'm addicted to many features like: form info, history. While I realize that we don't want to save these to flash drive (wear) it should be possible to save these to harddrive of each local machine I use. I realize that the data wouldn't be replicated from machine to machine - but it would better than losing the feature altogether.

i am testint FF 1.5 loader since your RC 3 Release. I use pFF on my local harddrive in a true crypt container for security reason. I don't need the splash screen and i try to disable it via *.INI file:

But PortableFirefox Loader is ignoring these settings. Is see splash screen every time. I noticed that splash screen must be included in *.exe. I deleted *.jpg but the screen is still there!

Portable firefox bug - jumpy

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on December 9, 2005 - 12:27pm


Love the product, thanks for the work on it. Just installed it and am looking forward to avoiding using IE now at school. When I ran it from my laptop though there was a periodic bug that would occur. Some pages periodically would be jumpy, as in when it loads the initial google home page the whole page would be jumping up and down about 3 mm in either direction. It comes and goes but happens on every 10th page. Sometimes a refresh gets rid of it, sometimes not. Doesn't seem to be related to the specific page, did it a couple of times too.
Also, it would be helpful to have on the extensions page of PortableApps which dll's you need to copy over to the portable app's directory to install the top 10 extensions. i.e. addblock, weatherfox, tab browsing preference.
