I work on computers without admin rights, and i can't install add-ons,

how to make a true portable Firefox without using registry at all

I really don't understand that a free software allows such a blocking, even if chrome doesn't pose any problem with add-ons.

is there a way to lanuch firefox with a option to not use registry or to redirect registry in file or in a not locked custom registry like


or something like that ?
