Wow the latest version of FF has so many dependencies its ridiculous. Is there a way to make FF run them from within its portable directory so I can actually make it portable?

In its current state it is not portable because of these dependencies.

Narr. You just need to:
  • Search in PPM in your puppies repo for "dbus". This I think must be installed.
  • Some gconf libs. I got mine from some package. Again this I think must be installed.

Or you could disable the need for those libs by doing your own portable compile. Which I do not know how to do. I guess there is a article on how to do it, in the Mozilla documentation. There is some info on Barry's blog on compiling Firefox with things like dbus disabled. That might be useful to you.

Hi,

Linux portable versions of Firefox and SeaMonkey are available from http://portablelinuxapps.org/ They are recent, but not the latest, though they can probably be successfully updated.

If Wine is in use then the latest versions of most, or all, Windows portable versions of Mozilla programs are available from http://portableapps.com/ and they can be updated from within each program (or by using the PortableApps menu and updater).

My regards

PS I tried the Linux version of SeaMonkey (out of curiosity as I don't use it), but I did not have the permissions to update to a later version and upon reflection updating a Linux portable now seems improbable.
