@ sylvander:-

There is of course fredx181's 'Firefox Quantum portable', which runs from a single directory.....which you can 'install' anywhere you like. So long as you start it from the included 'ff' script at first run, it sets up the Firefox profile within that directory, and thus remains totally self-contained.

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=112376

If you place the extracted 'firefox32' directory in /opt, you can use my attached FF_Quantum(opt) MenuEntry .pet to start it from the Menu on second, and subsequent starts.

I'm running a single instance of this from a remote data partition, sym-linked into multiple Puppies. Posting from it now.

Entirely up to you, of course.

Thanks for this Mike, but since I already have "firefox 61.0.1" functioning, I think I'll keep your suggestion in reserve.
I do like portable programs and SFS files, but not right now in this case methinks.

Today I'm going to be working with Semme by PM.
Will report back here on the results.

Semme has used TeamViewer [version 12.0.85001-i686.sfs on my PC] to do lots of useful stuff on my PC.
I've asked him to report here what was done so that all can benefit from the knowledge, and possibly some increased understanding.
I'd be interested to know and understand also.

All is working nicely to my liking. Very Happy

How do I add [SOLVED] to the title?

Hi, Sylvander. Glad to hear you're 'sorted'.....and that my TeamViewer package came in useful.

To mark as 'Solved':-

1.) Go to your original post.
2.) Click on 'Edit' (only you can do this).
3.) In the 'Title' field at the top, just add 'Solved' at the end. (Or [Solved]. Or [SOLVED]. I'm sure you get the idea... Smile )

Hope that helps for future reference.


Mike. Wink

I made a new "Pupsave Hot Backup" immediately the "save" of the final changes.

There's at least one or two things still needing done:

a. When I click on a link in an email in Thunderbird, it auto-opens a new TAB in an existing window rather than opening a new window.
Semme?

b. Any idea why the PupClockSet "sync" feature fails to auto-sync at each startup?
