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.

What's new in version 85.0

Firefox now protects you from supercookies, a type of tracker that can stay hidden in your browser and track you online, even after you clear cookies. By isolating supercookies, Firefox prevents them from tracking your web browsing from one site to the next.
It’s easier than ever to save and access your bookmarks. Firefox now remembers your preferred location for saved bookmarks, displays the bookmarks toolbar by default on new tabs, and gives you easy access to all of your bookmarks via a toolbar folder.
The password manager now allows you to remove all of your saved logins with one click, as opposed to having to delete each login individually.
Firefox no longer supports Adobe Flash. There is no setting available to re-enable Flash support.
