If it detects that Firefox is not installed on your machine, it will automatically ask for the path to Firefox Portable.

There's also a zip available to download:
No need to install!
But I don't know if it's stealth. Is it?

No need for programs like this when you can do it yourself. Just go to and for further Firefox tweaks have a look at

I didn't notice any improvement. Another *yawn-ware*

My only complaint is that it doesn't tell you what it's modifying. Or at least it didn't anywhere I looked.

Erind is correct. To tweek your portable Firefox you have to navigate to the "data" folder within your Firefox Portable program file structure.

Couldn't make it run either (with Firefox Portable). Somewhere, on it's homepage, it said it needs M$'s visual basic runtime environment. Got that, it still didn't recognize Firefox. Read some very conflicting opinions on the Internet about its effectivity. Got rid of it finally.

Found the problem. When it tells you to find your profile, select the Data folder.
