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.

"Good for when you are cleaning an infected PC"

November 01, 2012  |  By Jexthoth

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox Portable 16.0.2

Pros

Lets you work outside of the system to update or reinstall certain programs without necessarily being blocked or bogged down by the virus you are trying to defeat. Leaves no registry trace nor temp mess when you are finished on your system that I can tell.

Cons

A little slow, but still unbeatable surfing security.

Summary

Not as succeptable to rootkits. Portable.

"Forced installation of cnet supported bloatware"

November 12, 2011  |  By DaveC13

 |  Version: Mozilla Firefox Portable 8.0

Pros

Made me realize cnet likes to manipulate the download count of unnecessary bloatware.
Which means basically none.

Cons

The downloaded program will not let me install Mozilla Firefox Portable 8.0 without first installing "Drop Down Deals" browser app.

Summary

I was very frustrated with this download. It would not let me install Mozilla Firefox Portable 8.0 without agreeing to the terms and installation of the browser app "Drop Down Deals". I know this is freeware, but I will not install some bloatware to help cnet manipulate the download count of an unwanted program. Download the full Mozilla Firefox to avoid having to deal with the bloatware.
