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

Any chance you will stop writing to AppData? I know its an empty folder for crash report etc, but I don't care, it makes me worry at night.

No major complaints from me except that the escalating version numbers have been deprecating perfectly fine addons real quick, argh. I used to crank up "maxversion" a notch in "install.rdf", but still annoying, so I took a chance and set them to "99.*" and I'll see how it goes in the next few years!
Also, as Blaxima rightfully pointed out, it can leave some leftovers behind, especially if an error log is created.
Otherwise, works fine: not worse then Opera/IE/Chrome, and the addons make it a more flexible choice for me. I downloaded Chrome Portable again but didn't get a chance to give it another go yet.
