Mozilla Firefox Portable Edition is a fully functional package of Firefox optimized for use on a USB key drive. It has some specially-selected optimizations to make it perform faster and extend the life of your USB key as well as a specialized launcher that will allow most of your favorite extensions to work as you switch computers. It will also work from a CDRW drive (in packet mode), ZIP drives, external hard drives, some MP3 players, flash RAM cards and more.

Guess this would be useful for some, especially for on the go. I keep Firefox from writing to hard drive simply by checking in the Privacy options to clear cache on exit. Nothing gets written to the cache folder that way, just goes to memory until the browser is closed.

Don't think many pc users know about portable Firefox, or any portable software by asking around. In anycase. This is def. software I can't live without. A version of Firefox that you can install on your flash drive and use on any pc. Also a good way to try the latest version without installing if fully on ur pc. So you can get an idea if you like it or not. Takes a bit of fooling around to inport your desktop firefox settings, but its well worth it..

Firefox used to be a great browser, but memory leak issues have never been resolved. The new rapid-release version numbers make me dizzy.
Thanks for providing a portable version, though. Firefox is still my favourite browser!

I like Firefox but this version (17) enables Cleartype by default and that's HORRIBLE! !!
The only way I know to disable Cleartype in Firefox 17 is to disable hardware acceleration in the advanced settings.
If it wasn't for all this my rating would be 3/5
