Editors' Review

Firefox Portable is a full, up-to-date version of Firefox for Windows, only portable. A single folder holds everything, so Firefox Portable runs it on any Windows PC from a thumb drive without the need for installation. To uninstall it, just delete the folder or remove the drive. We suggest saving the folder to the desktop; you can always move it later.

Pros

Latest thing: Firefox Portable isn't stripped down or versions behind in looks or features: It's the newest version and takes the latest updates, too.

Intuitive menu: A new menu button groups your most frequently used features in one place, including Cut-Copy-Paste, zoom, sync, and options.

Customizable: Like the installed version, Firefox Portable is totally customizable in layout and controls.

Cons

Big folder: Firefox Portable's folder starts at 95MB and gets bigger with use. That's something to consider when evaluating storage options.

Portable or installed: Portability's downside is that it's not fully integrated into Windows, which can effect things like updates, security software, and log-on data.

Bottom Line

Firefox Portable means those who need a portable browser don't have to compromise on the latest features and performance.

Full Specifications

What's new in version 57.0
  • A completely new browsing engine, designed to take full advantage of the processing power in modern devices
  • A redesigned interface with a clean, modern appearance, consistent visual elements, and optimizations for touch screens
  • A unified address and search bar. New installs will see this unified bar. Learn how to add the stand-alone search bar to the toolbar
  • A revamped new tab page that includes top visited sites, recently visited pages, and recommendations from Pocket (in the US, Canada, and Germany)
  • An updated product tour to orient new and returning Firefox users
  • AMD VP9 hardware video decoder support for improved video playback with lower power consumption
  • An expanded section in preferences to manage all website permissions
  • Various security fixes
  • Firefox now exclusively supports extensions built using the WebExtension API, and unsupported legacy extensions will no longer work. Learn more about our efforts to improve the performance and security of extensions
  • The browser's autoscroll feature, as well as scrolling by keyboard input and touch-dragging of scrollbars, now use asynchronous scrolling. These scrolling methods are now similar to other input methods like mousewheel, and provide a smoother scrolling experience
  • The content process now has a stricter security sandbox that blocks filesystem reading and writing on Linux, similar to the protections for Windows and macOS that shipped in Firefox 56
  • Middle mouse paste in the content area no longer navigates to URLs by default on Unix systems
  • Removed the toolbar Share button. If you relied on this feature, you can install the Share Backported extension instead.
  • Some older versions of the ATOK IME, including ATOK 2006, 2008, 2009 and 2010, can cause crashes and are therefore disabled on the Windows 64-bit version of Firefox Quantum. To fix those incompatibility issues, please use a newer version of ATOK or one of other IMEs.
  • The default font for Japanese text is now Meiryo
  • Complete visual refresh of both the Light and Dark DevTools themes, matching the new visual style of Firefox Quantum
  • The Inspector shows the values of CSS variables on hover
  • Completely new and re-designed Console panel. Joining the Debugger and the Network Monitor, the Console has been rewritten using modern web technologies such as React and Redux. It now also allows to inspect objects in context.
