FF Portable Request...

14 May 2010, 08:26

Hi There!
Thank you for the wonderful program to help speed up FF!

One Requests -
-I am using FF portable and my profile is located here :
C:\Program Files\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

I tried to create a shortcut with this in the Target field :
"C:\Documents and Settings\dLight\Desktop\speedyfox.exe" /Profile:C:\Program Files\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile

...and it did not work.

Can you kindly help me structure this line so it will automatically go to my profile?

Thank you for your time!
Peace, Blessings and Grace




PS>Can it be done that SpeedFoxy writes 1, 2, or 3 previously used Profile locations to itself? So that the next time you run it, it will have a quick suggestion. Thanks!

What about
"C:\Documents and Settings\dLight\Desktop\speedyfox.exe" "/Profile:C:\Program Files\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile"

Hi Steven

Thanks for the suggestion. I can always learn more.

I copy/pasted your suggestion into the shortcut properties but unfortunately, it did not work!

When Speedyfox came up, it still had the message that no installed FF found.
I am guessing that it did not like the parameters and ignored them???


Any further suggestions?

Would I have to change anything in the "Start In" field in the properties of the shortcut? Right now it is set for Desktop, which is where the shortcut is located.

Thanks again!
Peace

Try Start->Run command and copy/paste the command above. Does it work?

Hi Steven
Same results as before, message says FF not installed on system, but can manually select a profile.
Any other suggestions?

What file or folder is speedyfox looking for?

Has no one else tried to run with parameters?

I tested with this also with run command, but without luck... (removed \profile from the end)
"C:\Documents and Settings\dLight\Desktop\speedyfox.exe" "/Profile:C:\Program Files\FirefoxPortable\Data\"





May I suggest for future version, make application check it's current directory. So user would copy program into their profile folder and create a shortcut for desktop / quicklaunch.

The problem is that you're using capital letter P in /Profile.
Use
"C:\Documents and Settings\dLight\Desktop\speedyfox.exe" "/profile:C:\Program Files\FirefoxPortable\Data\"

Wow! Thanks!

Ok, so I created a program folder for Speedyfox and created a shortcut for it in my Quicklaunch Bar which contains this:
"C:\Program Files\SpeedyFox\speedyfox.exe" "/profile:C:\Program Files\FirefoxPortable\Data\profile"


I was confused for a moment because no window came up to let me know it is running or when it is finished.
Using Sysinternal.com utilities, I was finally able to confirm that it ran.

Kindly consider putting something on the screen to let the user know that it is running or when it finishes.
(I guess I can put it in a batch file... hmmm... )


Thank You Very Much for your help!
I appreciate your willingness to help.

Peace, Blessings and Grace

Hello Steven,

Yalll's app works great! I tried what you and dlight was talking about and it didn't work... So, I was just trying something and it worked. In the Speedyfox menu where it says 'custom' I put where my Firefox portable program was "C:\Documents and Settings\Default\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\" to "C:\Documents and Settings\Default\Desktop\FirefoxPortable\Data" and that worked. Just saying. :good:

Thanks,
Michael
