Portable Firefox - Run from USB Drive

Portable Firefox 1.5

Portable Firefox is the popular Mozilla Firefox web browser packaged as a portable app, so you can take your bookmarks, extensions and saved passwords with you.

It certainly works great, as I am posting this blog entry from Firefox that is running on my USB drive.

Installation: To install Portable Firefox, just download the ZIP file at the top of the Portable Firefox page and unzip it anywhere on your portable drive.

Copy Current Local Firefox Settings: If you're using a local copy of Firefox, you may wish to just copy your local Firefox settings right into Portable Firefox. Your local Firefox profile is usually installed in C:\Documents and Settings\[user]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.???\ Just copy all of those files except the cache directories to the profile directory within Portable Firefox.
