Yes, you have your own set of portable applications – your secret super portable software weapons. I understand, it’s like click and run, your cyber veins are screaming to forget native installation. No more to installation cycles!
You got your portable Firefox, Firebird, Ccleaner, KompoZer, UTorrent, VLC, Gimp and a host of other apps like portable games. Then you fire-up your portable Firefox with your custom set of bookmarks, plug-ins and settings. Then, wham! Sites with Flash design won’t display. Off course you will close Firefox, and install Flash for Non-IEs. Flip open Firefox again with the same issue, Flash won’t cooperate. Itching to display that favorite site with an annoying flash animation? Here’s how to install Flash 10 to Portable Firefox 3.08:
- First thing, Adobe Flash Player 10 is not portable. It requires installation into a native Windows OS.
- The workaround: Install Flash in the PC that you are using then copy the files to you Portable Firefox.
- It is imperative that you close any instance of Firefox first.
- The Flash Player files needed for your Firefox portable is located in the directory where flash was installed: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\Macromed\Flash\
- Copy file NPSWF32.dll from C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash to Drive (X) or USB Drive that contains your Portable Firefox. The destination folder is the supposed plug-in directory of your firefox, i.e. E:\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox\plugins
- Fire-up Firefox portable and voila! All Flash enabled sites will now work.
