I am using US on a USB. I want to run the portableapps version of Firefox because of all the bookmarks and changes that I have made to my browser. I do not want to open the default browser on the computer. Is there a way to force US to open my portableapps browser instead of the default browser? I really appreciate any help. Thanks.

With the current versions of US there is no easy way to open a portable browser. Running a portable browser requires tighter integration and significant changes to the controller. That said the above has been addressed in the upcoming new release of US.


In addition the new release addresses the issue off full portability. This is currently not possible because of the reliance on using a host PC’s hosts file to resolve domain addresses when using Apache’s Vhost.


All the best
